The Homeless Pen...

02nd December 2012


This overlaid pen was commissioned by a collector friend of Henry's some years ago. The instructions were that a foliate pattern was wanted, which was a 'one-off' design, the client wanted a unique pen for himself. He duly paid a deposit, and Henry set to drawing and working on the design. However, by the time the pen had been finished, unfortunately the client's circumstances had significantly changed, the order was cancelled and the pen has remained in Henry's workshop ever since!

Henry has now decided to sell this bespoke commission at a reduced price, [in view of the deposit which had already been paid] for £750. This is a truly unique design/pen, and no other examples exist. The overlay is made of 925 Sterling Silver and the pen has a converter-style filling system. The nib shown in the picture is a double-broad 18K Bock nib.

Pen Dimensions:
Closed: 162mm
Cap Posted: 212mm
End of barrel to nib tip: 139mm
Barrel Girth: 15mm
