Fahrney's Exclusive Cervinia Limited Edition Fountain Pen
A young pen maker named Guiseppe Carboni opened his first workshop in 1936 in Turin, Italy, and named it Cervinia, after one of the highest peaks in the western Italian Alps, Mt. Cervino. The company was known for the quality of its craftsmanship, and the variety of filling systems and celluloid colors used to create its fountain pens. During World War II, Carboni was forced to hide materials in the basement of his family’s shop in German occupied Turin. According to history, the Cervinia legacy included several thousand original celluloid pieces dating back to the 1930’s. These same fountain pens, once thought lost to the perils of war, have been given new life by Stipula, totally restored with refurbished original pieces on the same machines that Giuseppe Carboni used to create them. The Cervinia completion program is sorted by model and color, with restoration held to the same standards as testified by the memoirs of Giovanni Borrione, nephew of Carboni and last witness of the work at the Turin factory. Now, nearly a century later, you have the chance to own a gorgeous and unique piece of Cervinia history, as Fahrney’s Pens is the only company world wide to offer these four stunning models. Each is presented in a custom Cervinia tin with three bottles of ink, and a catalog detailing the story of the resurrection of the astounding collection. The exclusive limited edition fountain pens are fitted with 14K gold Globus nibs that have been crafted on original Globus machines, entirely restored and put back into operation by Stipula at its workshops in Florence. Choose from ‘Model 57’ in grey/green celluloid (button filler), ‘Regina Elena’ in tangerine peel celluloid (button filler), ‘Trasparente’ in semi-clear green/black celluloid (piston filler), and the Model ‘Savoia’ in black celluloid (piston filler). Each Cervinia fountain pen is one-of-a-kind and the number of pieces available differs by color. Bottle fill only.
