Pen Case, ca 1500, Italian The sides of this pen case and cover are pierced for a suspension strap so that it could be used to transport quill pens, which tended to be messy. Two unidentified coats of arms are embossed on its exterior. Below one is the inscription, "alta petit" ("he seeks lofty things") and the other reads, "humilitas" ("humility").
