    Product Description

    Metropolitan Museum of Art Elizabethan Armor Fountain Pen
    The Metropolitan Museum of Art Elizabethan Armor Fountain Pen is designed from the brilliantly shining armor of George Clifford Third Earl of Cumberland (1558-1605). This gold-plated pen interprets his richly embellished armor, which was forged in the Royal Workshops at Greenwich and is remarkably well preserved some five centuries later. It featured Elizabeth Tudor’s insignia (two E’s mirroring each other), the Tudor rose, and the fleur-de-lis, which was then part of the English coat of arms.

    Clifford was made the Queen’s Champion in 1590; the design of these pens, with brass barrel and cap, is adapted from his splendid armor in the Metropolitan Museum’s collection. The fountain pen features a 24K gold-plated steel nib.
