Brass Holder | Porte Crayon


Handmade historical holder for drawing with chalk

This is the tool used by Renaissance artists to draw with chalk. The use of the porte crayon persisted into the 20th century but is no longer in popular use. The Renaissance Workshop makes each of these by hand in order to enable artists to draw with authentic tools and materials.
