[Sold] Venice Mardi Gras fountain pen

R11,500

Hanna Farmer’s series of paintings of Circuses from around the world is astonishing, and this one based on the Carnival in Venice, or the Venice Mardi Gras, depicts the fabulous masks that are worn. The young woman on the cap wears a mask with feathers that gleam with an iridescent turquoise and pink, colours that are mirrored in her harlequin-patterned dress. Above is a half-sun, half-steampunk moon and behind her a gondola rows towards one of the city’s distinctive arched bridges.

There are not just one but two intricate steampunk masks on the barrel. a woman in a carnival costume juggling golden balls and more scenes from the magical city.

This 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 bronze cap band, section ring, and bronze logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a turqoise grip 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.

Nib:

Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.
