[Available] Gilded Serpents fountain pen

R9,000

Kseniia Nel has painted the most mesmerising gilded serpents on this fountain pen, and she says it took her days and days to get the effect she was looking for. The serpents are majestic, rather than scary, and have the aura of the mythic about them … the types of sacred beings that might transform into other shapes, or be worshiped for their ability to bring about either healing or poison. Kseniia’s painting is reminiscent of those found in ancient tombs, in papyrus scrolls. Her artwork has a magical quality that will bring good luck to its owner … and bad luck to anyone who tried to steal their pen!

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

Nib:

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

The Jabulani model

SPECIFICATIONS

This is a gently curvaceous model, with a girth of 16 mm (0,6”), narrowing to a 10,7 mm (0,4”) grip section. The relatively large size of the model is to allow the artist sufficient space for their artwork, and the artwork is encased in a layer of clear resin to protect it from getting damaged during day-to-day use. Our logo medallion is embedded in the cap finial which is ever-so-slightly rounded, and the barrel finial is ever-so-slightly conical. The cap is a flush-fit and does not post. The Jabulani model usually comes with a hand-made, cap band and section ring in either Argentium silver or bronze, though this may differ depending on what best suits the artwork. Custom hand-crafted roll stops can be added.
