Butterfly Brass Pen Rest

Machined from solid brass, I’m confident your pen rest will last several lifetimes and look good doing it! As a bonus, unlike most rests, it will happily accommodate up to three brushes or pens. Goodbye messy ink splattered desk!

Inspired by a beautiful joinery method called a butterfly joint, this pen rest smacks of quality and craft.

Exquisite products and first class support for this absolute beginner

I’m an absolute beginner at calligraphy. Tom’s Studio has supplied me with many goodies over the past few months and these have been an enormous help in getting started on the journey. The pleasant and professional team at Tom’s have been unfailingly polite and helpful with all my queries. The range of products is carefully curated, all are exquisite, well designed and beautifully engineered. After a bit of a learning curve, the oblique pens in particular have been an enormous help to me in making progress with calligraphy (though I still have a very long way to go!). And this stunning pen rest is the perfect accessory for them. I am now officially addicted to shopping at Tom’s Studio.


Absolutely delighted with my Butterfly Brass Pen Rest. It is beautifully made and looks perfect on my desk. It is so nice to have quality, unique items on show. A joy to look at and use. A Pen Rest which I will treasure for a lifetime.


I don’t understand why there aren’t many beautiful calligraphy accessories out there. I had been looking for a pen rest for ages but I didn’t want something ugly. Then I found Tom’s studios and waited sort of patiently for it to come in stock. Everything Tom makes/designs is beautiful and functional. This gives me joy every time I practice and encourages me to do more so I can use my beautiful things. Even the packaging looks a beautiful and eco-minded. All my calligraphy pennies will be going to Tom - really is no point going anywhere else. You can’t improve in perfection.
