Metropolitan Museum Of Art 18th Century Parisian Fountain Pen
The Parisian pen, inspired by the collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is modeled after an exquisite 18th century étui design by the renowned French goldsmith Georges-Antoine Croze. The étui was a small ornamental case originally used to hold sealing wax. Letters sealed with a wax stamp bearing the writer’s crest were especially valued at a time when correspondence was hand carried.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art 18th Century Parisian steel nib fountain pen features a gold-plated brass body with a scale pattern lacquered in blue, red and green. The fountain pen has a medium nib and is cartridge or converter refilable. A blue cabochon sits atop the pen’s crown. Each pen is presented in a gorgeous blue lacquered wood box with a history of the design.
