[Sold] Peacock Plume fountain pen

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

If this Peacock Plume fountain pen goes missing, it is because it has slipped into my pocket! Lisa Strachan has painted a study of peacock feathers in a gloriously dramatic style. The azure background highlights the colours so well. At the centre of each feather is a deep, dark purple ‘eye’, surrounded by a ring that is sapphire blue below fading into a lighter blue above, which in turn is inside a gold border fringed with emerald green. The individual barbs are streaks of black surrounded by dazzling gold. It has a vivacious, opulent feel. We have added a deep blue section grip that has both a shimmer and a colour shift effect as you tilt the pen from side to side.

This pen has a bronze section ring, no cap band as that would break up the effect, a bronze logo medallion in the cap finial and Lisa’s initials on the barrel finial.

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

PS: Please note that the last photo shows that the black marks on this pen are not flaws but are in fact , in Lisa’s words, “from the way I painted the base in blue – it’s quite a gestural brush stoke and in some spots the brush strokes haven’t fully overlapped”. I can just picture Lisa painting this pen in a flamboyant yet totally absorbed mood, both focused and unselfconscious. No doubt that’s what makes it so spectacular.

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.
