These beautiful pens are made from brilliant glazed porcelain with screen printed motifs and patterns. Porcelain may seem an odd choice for a fountain pen but perhaps not when you consider porcelain was invented in China in the 7th Century. The porcelain bodies of these pens always seem to feel cold to the touch but they do make a pleasant change from the traditional plastic or metal pens.
Please note that these pens are hand made and they don’t have the uniformity and precision of mass produced pens made by machines.
