Conklin Limited Edition Sterling Silver Crescent Vermeil Fountain Pen
The Conklin Pen Company traces its roots to 1891 in Toledo Ohio when Roy Conklin was granted his first fountain pen patent. In 1901 Conklin patented the Crescent Filler in what would soon become the most technologically advanced and best selling pen on the market. With Mark Twain as it spokesman, Conklin continued to thrive and became one of the most innovative manufacturers of fine writing instruments. The latest homage to Mark Twain’s favorite pen brings new levels of sophistication to this iconic collection. The breathtaking, limited edition Sterling Silver Vermeil Crescent Fountain Pen is constructed with vermeil-plated solid sterling silver; from the elegantly chased barrel to the engraved clip, crescent mechanism and front section. The pen weighs in at a hefty 60 grams, yet remains perfectly balanced for extended writing sessions. The silversmith’s hallmarks and the pen’s unique number is engraved on the sterling silver mid-band. Only 98 pieces of this crescent-filling classic will ever be produced. Its solid 14K gold nib is extremely flexible for the ultimate in expressiveness. Also available in italic fine or italic medium. Handmade in Florence, Italy. Bottle fill only.
