My Ideal Pen Cup

Click for a better image.   If this were any larger it would just be a 5 gallon bucket.  Odd question...can anyone name that square gray one in the lower right side by the red Sarasa?

I have several of these on my art desk. I thought I was the only one. Not sure about the grey one. Found this online, could it be this one?

Can't offer an identification, but wanted to pass on a tip. One way to coerce order in a large pencil cup = inserting one of more of otherwise tossable cardboard toilet tissue rolls. They can be easily trimmed for desired dimensions, and they're flexible. I keep a can of spray paint handy to better disguise 'em. I've long used the empty rolls for holding extension cords and the like, then reached for one out of desperation re a too-large pencil cup. Worked a treat!

Pam G, I need a picture! And Sandy, you are very very correct. Bonus points... what Hotel Chain uses these?

It's from the W Hotel. We have some of these at work because we've had several holiday parties there!

I keep my sharpies in a huge yogurt cup. My pens are all in Starbucks cups, whenever they accidentally double cup my drink.
