Carina in Vintage Celluloid Golds and Bronze

Regular price $315.00 Sale

Here is an Carina Fountain Pen that has been done in a very old Cellulose Acetate Gold Chip material with accents in a modern Burnished Bronze resin and hand machined Bronze metal trim.
Its unusual to find this rare old Cellulose Acetate material as new old stock, it is probably 70 to 80 years old, and it has a wonderful warm look and an excellent feel in the hand. I've paired it with a modern Alumilite resin called Burnished Bronze which complements the colors without fighting with the pattern. Together the two materials make a great marriage
Due to the relitively narrow diameter of the vintage material the pen is fairly slender, based on a 13mm cap thread rather than my usual 14mm. This makes the pen much more graceful in profile and easy to use for folks with medium to small hands.
A full selection of nib options are available including steel and solid gold, please make your selection from the drop down lists.
Please note that not all nib options are on hand at all times and it may take up to two weeks to receive the nib of your choice. Please contact me first to check stock if you prefer not to wait.
