This pen was made in the Etruria style that has distinguished Stipula as a high quality pen manufacturer. Once again the collaboration of the minds at Chatterley Pens and Stipula apply ingenuity and style into to a blend of old world class and new age technology. This piece is considered an oversize pen, as it is larger than most of the previous Etruria’s, however it carries traditional characteristics of the Etruria line. You notice the clip, size of the nib, and the way the pen is shaped you will see the that Stipula has followed through with their commitment to their users, providing a very nice fine writing instrument.
Crafted in Firenze, the faceted Etruria features 8 sides, and a mottled green/black celluloid. This shape and style is complimented with a in-house piston filling system. The clip is made of 925 sterling silver and the cap is fixed with sterling silver rings, to accompany the 14kt gold single tone nib. This pen is a limited edition numbered 18 world wide, and is available in F, M, or 1.1 Stub, also known as italic. MSRP on this pen is $995, exclusively available through PenTime for $550.
|I’m awestruck by this pen! I’ve been wanting an Etruria for a long time and I love pens with facets. But there’s something about it that just doesn’t look as appealing as the standard Etruria. However, I do love the look of the multiple cap bands and moving the cap threads to the front of the section. Very, very tempting.||Based solely on my great experience with the Stipula Model T, this Faceted Etruria is a pen I would certainly love to see in real life. Thankfully, there are only 18 available, so I’ll likely never see one and therefore not be tempted!|
