[Sold] 20 000 Leagues Under the Sea – hand-painted fountain pen


Based on the Jules Verne novel, Hanna Farmer’s interpretation of 20 000 Leagues Under the Sea, is a fabulous pen, in every sense of the word. She has included Captain Nemo’s Nautilus being attacked by a giant squid or devilfish, and attempts to harpoon the monster; divers wandering the ocean depths in the company of sharks, rays and turtles; a steampunky view through a porthole; and a man trapped in a giant tentacle.

20 000 Leagues Under the Sea is the third in a current series of 3 Jules Verne pens painted by Hanna. So far she has also painted Journey to the Center of the Earth and The Mysterious Island.

This pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. It has a bronze cap band, section ring, and bronze logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a teal section. The pen comes with a steel Jowo #6 nib.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art, hence no-one else will ever own an identical pen.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
