[Available] The Elves hand-painted fountain pen

R11,000

The Elves, by Hanna Farmer, is magical. It shows Elven folk riding on unicorn-back across massive stone bridges, shooting arrows, with faeries in the background, and oh, those ears! The Elves live in a dreamy fortress up on a mountainside. Hanna’s artwork reminds me of Lothlorien, though these are not Galadhrim Elves as this is not specifically a Lord of the Rings pen, though it has the same atmosphere of that book which holds a special place in my family’s heart.

The pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and doodled 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 logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a light purple grip section.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. If you have seen a pen painted by Hanna that has been sold, you are more than welcome to contact us with a request for a pen on a similar theme, or to request a custom pen in a unique theme of your own.

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.
