Delta Adivasi Limited Edition Piston Fill Fountain Pen
Delta continues its fascinating Indigenous People collection with a tribute to the Adivasi - descendants of the first inhabitants of India. Adivasi is a Hindi/Sanskrit term derived from 'adi' (original) and 'vasi' (inhabitant). The Adivasi have never been part of the economic system - their activities in agriculture, animal husbandry and craft have always been exclusively for their own subsistence. With the onset of modern industry and discrimination against the tribes, many communities fled to inaccessible hill areas, where they could preserve their traditional way of life.
The Adivasi pens are hand-turned from bars of mother-of-pearl resins in bronze and green woven with red and ivory bands. Solid sterling silver accents include the rings on the cap and body engraved with prints typical of Adivasi garments, and the clip with a raised tribal sculpture, the Sarangi. The fountain pen is available in the Special Limited model with lever filling mechanism limited to 857 pieces. This pen features a flexible, 18K gold nib engraved with a tribal figure.
