Visconti Limited Edition SpeakEasy Fountain Pen
From 1920 to 1933, Prohibition was a national ban on the sale, production, importation, and transportation of alcoholic beverages. This movement was promoted by conservative groups and organizations such as rural Protestants and social Progressives in an attempt to control a variety of perceived social evils such as alcoholism, drug abuse, and gambling. During this era, Speakeasies became one of the most prominent symbols of American culture. Often run by organized crime groups, these secret establishments provided a location for patrons to indulge. To enter, Speakeasies often had a hidden location, passwords, or a special knock.
To commemorate this pivotal period in American history, Visconti has created the Limited Edition Speakeasy. The pen, in polychrome celluloid, has a sanitized container inside it that holds a shot of its owner's favorite liquor. An ingenious rotating mechanism in the section allows the user to rotate a window, which states the type of liquor held in the pen. Limited to 1,000 pieces, the Speakeasy is available in Fountain pen and Rollerball. The Fountain pen features a 23K Palladium Dreamtouch nib. Each pen is packaged with a matching hip flask. Cartridge fill only.
