From the collection of Horst Rechelbacher. Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda, used and loved his pens as tools of his trade, using them to run his company and write his books. Rechelbacher used his company and books to pioneer the field of safe and eco-friendly cosmetics, permanently altering the beauty industry. The acquisition of this pen creates a concrete connection between the owner and one of America’s greatest entrepreneurs.
Condition: Pen has been inked. Some slight wear to the display box.
