Edison Collier as a bulb-filler in Antique Acrylic Marble - delicious (1 of 2)
I'm preparing a post about my second Edison Collier that has a special twist to it (the story not the pen!). To set the stage I wanted to share a little background. This is how I became introduced to Brian Gray and the Edison Pen Company, together with some eye candy
After learing about Brian Gray and his Edison Pen Company through FPN and Brian and Rachel Goulet, the good folks at Goulet Pen Company / Inknouveau.com I had to make the Edison Pen Company booth at the 2011 DC Pen Show my first - and second - stop of the day. Out of pure enthusiasm for the way Brian and his wife walked me and my wife through the styles, materials, and all manner of craftsmanship, two things happened: Brian made the vision I had for an "old-school style" custom fountain pen into a real possibility, and I ordered it! Thanks, Brian, for your "eye candy becomes food-for-thought" SmugMug sites!
By the way, Brian and is wife are just simply fantastic folks in every respect.
Now...on to the unboxing of my most prized fountain pen:
Brian makes the experience even more special with a personal note, and guide and instruction sheets.
The case for your pen compliments is very nicely.
My custom Edison Pen Company Collier in Antique Marble acrylic as a bulb-filler with a long amber ink window and a two-tone fine point nib complete with the engraved Edison Pen Company logo.
The cap, the pen section and body, and the blind cap.
I especially like how the engraving looks on the long amber ink window.
