[Sold] Mermaid hand-painted fountain pen


This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Yulia Glas adores this pen! She said she strained her eyes getting the details on the mermaid’s portrait just right, and when she realised she could not find a paintbrush fine enough to paint the maiden’s face, she resorted to using a pin to create the finest of lines! On the barrel, the mermaid can be seen with the glistening scales on her magnificent tail. On the cap she is sitting on a rock with the moon above the sea, with stars falling from the sky as she waits for her prince upon the distant ship. Whether she will lure the ship on to the rock is up to your imagination!

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. If you would like to request a custom pen from Yulia, you are welcome to contact us via the contact form on our website.


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 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.
