Fahrney's Exclusive 2017 Retro 51 Cherry Blossom Fountain Pen
Fahrney’s 11th Special Edition Cherry Blossom collection is a tribute to the beauty, wonder and heritage of the United States Botanic Garden. During the late 18th century, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison shared the dream of a national botanic garden and were instrumental
in its establishment on the National Mall in 1820. In continuous operation and open to the public since 1850, the Botanic Garden moved to its present location in 1933. Released each year during the Cherry Blossom celebration in our home base in Washington, DC, Fahrney’s exclusive 2017 pens are an original design created by Retro 51 featuring the delicate blossoms surrounding the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory and the Capitol dome. Perched in the blossoms is a Downy Woodpecker, a popular bird in the DC area. The lovely design has a mint green metallic satin base and is screen-printed on the solid metal Tornado-style pens with antique pewter-colored accents. The limited production series includes a fountain pen with stainless steel nib, twist-top rollerball/ball pen, and a 1.15mm pencil with eraser – all presented in a custom-designed, cylinder-shaped box. Use your new pens to record your budding thoughts in Fahrney’s own 2017 Cherry Blossom journal.
