Product Description

A quite charming ‘over-sized’ fountain pen…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece and its original purpose, we would suggest it may have been used as a trade sign or as a display piece for a stationer. Made in what we think is cast aluminium, the pen stretches over 50cm in height. It has a little weight to it, but could easily be hung on a wall or simply placed on a shelf as a collectable.  We see this as a unique piece of alternative decor for one’s home, or a nice display piece in a retail environment. It would certainly cause a talking point or two…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The pen is structurally good with some surface scars and abrasions, some tatty areas and some paint chipping. There is also a weathered nature to the surface in areas, yet we feel this simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
