About This Product
This dartlike writing instrument combines three special materials: a goose feather quill, a white bronze grip with intricate decorative details, and a Murano glass pen nib. Each glass pen is handmade in Venice with a spiral shape that holds a large quantity of ink with each dip and a fine, consistent point.
Also included in this gorgeous gift set are a metal nib adapter and a vintage steel crown nib. You can remove the glass pen, insert the adapter, and mount the included steel pen—or any of the standard nibs from your collection.
A wax-sealed 15 mL bottle of Bortoletti Hamburg Calligraphy Ink completes the set. This free-flowing, intensely colored ink is perfect for metal and glass nibs. You will receive a random ink color: black, blue, or sepia.
This set is packaged in a Bortoletti gift box and measures approx. 10" x 5" x 1.5". The pen is approximately 8.25" long with nib installed.
Made in Italy.
Bortoletti Fonderia Artistica Venezia has been making fine writing supplies for more than 40 years. The four Bortoletti brothers set up shop in Venice in 1980, offering traditional pens, inks, and desk tools made from "precious and unalterable" materials like wood, bronze, and glass. Today, Bortoletti products are sold all over the world, but they are still hand-crafted in Venice and driven by the traditions of metalworking, glassblowing, woodworking, and handwriting.
