[Sold] Oliver hand-painted fountain pen

R11,500

“Please sir, I want some more.” Hanna Farmer has not only captured this scene perfectly, but also the atmosphere and characters from Dickens’s classic novel, Oliver Twist. The workhouse, industrial London with its smog and smoking chimney stacks, Fagin’s band of pickpockets and The Artful Dodger. Her choice of colours is brilliant with the sky a fiery orange and the foreground in many, many shades of grey! And despite the poverty and Bill Sike’s brutality, Hanna has managed to maintain Dickens’s overall message of optimism with the quote, “The sun, that brings back not light alone, but new life, and hope, to man.”

The 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 silver cap band, section ring, and silver logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a brick-reddish brown 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.
