[Sold] Hansel, Gretel & Snow White fountain pen

R11,000

As part of her Grimm’s Fairy Tales series, Hanna Farmer has illustrated the story of Hansel and Gretel on the cap of this fountain pen, and Snow White on the barrel.

Hansel and Gretel shows the children lost and abandoned amongst scary trees; the witch hobbling along; her gingerbread house and the children walking up the path that is lined with candy-striped canes and lollipops.

Snow White has a magnificent Evil Queen shown from the back looking into her mirror … “Mirror, Mirror on the wall …”, her disguised as an old woman carrying the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, the castle (which looks uncannily like the Disney castle!), and Snow White dancing up the hill to meet the Seven Dwarfs. (Please note the level of detail: at Hanna’s husband’s insistence, one dwarf is holding a shovel and another a pickaxe. He felt they looked incomplete without them!)

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, bronze section ring, copper and bronze logo in the cap finial, and we have added a deep burgundy grip section.

This pen can be bought individually or together with others from The Grimm’s Fairy Tales collection. One thing we ought to emphasise is that 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.
