A few years ago someone gave me a few pieces of this desk set - letter opener, clock, and business card holder. When I moved into my new office, my desk didn't have a drawer. That wasn't a problem because my desk set had a matching pencil/pen holder! YEAH ME! New shiny object! Then I received this HUGE box from Brighton and thought wow this is going to be BIG...then I opened the box and the inside boxes kept getting smaller. When I finally reached the pencil cup I was SHOCKED at how small it was (I didn't really pay attention to measurements when I ordered thinking it would be like most others). It is HALF the size of a regular sized pencil cup. Meaning, it holds 1 pair of scissors, 4 pens and a letter opener and that is a tight squeeze. This is in contrast to another one I keep in my cupboard that holds 2 highlighters, 5 sharpies, 4 pens, a mini flashlight and a ruler - with extra space. This is a standard size pencil cup from an office store – 3” in diameter and 4” high. I put them next to each other for grins and giggles and it was comical! All that being said, I will be keeping my “mini” Brighton pencil holder because it is SO pretty and it matches the rest of my set, but I really wish, for almost $40, it would be bigger/normal sized. I am giving it 4 hearts because this poor little thing still needs to grow before it can get to have 5 hearts :)

The Geneva Pencil/Pen Holder is beautiful! I also bought the Geneva Pen and the Geneva Letter Opener . I have them displayed on my oak rolltop desk, so I enjoy them even when I'm not using them. All three are high quality, a great value and much more beautiful in person. They all came wrapped beautifully which was really fun. I highly recommend all three!

It was smaller than what I thought, didn't read the dimensions. But would have bought it anyway. Love it.
Collect all the pieces in this desk collection!
