Product Description

Metropolitan Museum of Art Medieval Colonnette Fountain Pen
Brilliant enamels from 12th-century Cologne bear witness to the importance of the church in the cultural life of the city. By about 1300, the city of Cologne held Germany's largest urban population and one of its most prolific artistic centers.

A group of medieval enamels in the Museum's collection were once part of the massive shrines that lavishly decorated the interiors of Cologne's churches; some of these fragments resemble small-scale door arches, columns, and capitals. Adorned with intricate champlevé enamel, a colonnette, or miniature column, from this group was made in Cologne about 1175-1200. The Medieval Colonnette fountain pen has a twist cap and medium German made gold plated bi-color nib and comes with a standard cartridge and convertor.

"Got the catalog after my wife was finished with it. Knew right away that I'd better order at least one of the Holiday Caran D'Ache 849's! Her passion for the 849 model is such that I must be quick to purchase a new color or she'll get it for herself!" - Verified Buyer, Dec '21
