[Sold] Rosemaling hand-painted fountain pen


Kseniia Nel is an artist from Ukraine who is currently living in a neighbouring town here on the southern top of Africa. She is an accomplished artist and immediately took to the idea of painting on fountain pens. Her first three pens are fabulous! This one is inspired by the distinctive Scandinavian folk art form called rosemaling, or rose-painting, which involves stylised flowers or flowing patterns, usually C- or S-shaped, with scrollwork or fine lines. Kseniia painted the background gold colour in six separate layers, going around and around the pen to give an impression of wrapped silk thread. She included a band of light bluey-turquoise on the cap, then painted the distinctive rosemaling patterns in an elegant, understated white, with dotted gold embellishments.

We have added turquoise grip section, an engraved nib, our logo medallion in bronze, and a bronze cap band and bronze section ring.

One thing we should 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.


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.
