DESCRIPTION
The inside of this pencil box is a tile designed by Gio Ponti for the facade of the Bijenkorf in Eindhoven. A limited number of these pen trays was given to dignitaries in honor of the opening of the branch in Eindhoven on March 18, 1969. This date is also engraved in the brass casing. Remarkably, the pen tray still has the original packaging.
