[Sold] Gypsy Roadshow hand-painted fountain pen


This pen forms part of Hanna Farmer’s Circus Collection. Gypsy Roadshow features a dramatic gypsy fortune teller, a lion wearing steampunk accessories, a gypsy fiddler with a partner dancing next to their steampunk wagon, more gypsy caravans, a fire-breather, a fire-eater and a sword-swallower. There is a steampunk wagon with a steam-driven contraption selling candyfloss (aka cotton candy / spookasem / ghost’s breath), an insouciant performer in a bustier and a steampunk and feather headdress, and a circus tent in shades of black, lavender, mauve with highlights of copper.

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 shimmery deep purple section.

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.
