Great pix there Murfie.

That Lucky Curve (Parker ?) is a very unusual and attractive colour with gorgeous patterns.

Congratulations on the black/red ripple ebonite Stipula Novecento, I like the petrified wood look it has. Was it a Christmas present ?

They are all beautiful pens, but my favorite is the black/red ripple. Thanks for sharing and making us drool once again! :D

An indirect one. It was my end of a swap with another FPG member. His loss, my gain ...

My pleasure! You are most welcome. Nothing like ogling a beautiful fountain pen ... (and once you're my age you will realise that I was dead serious). :cry:

Oh Murfie, thank you!

These beauties are lovely to behold. From these pens and your pictures I can see your patience. And it's justly rewarded. One thing about your pens that I particularly admire is their conditions -- they always look so clean and lovingly preserved.

Quick questions about the Stipula - what is its filling mechanism and how old is it?

Kai, It's a piston filler and circa early 2000's is all I know about this one.

All of those pens are stunning, but the jade Lucky Curve is a thing of outstanding beauty.

The Jade and Black Duofolds are my favorite. That Stipula though... love the ebonite on that one.

Thanks Ivan, and while I'm very pleased with the photo, the ebonite just looks so much better in the hand than in the photo.
