    Default TIBALDI IRIDE FOUNTAIN PEN AND PENCIL

    Tibaldi Iride fountain pen and pencil - absolutely STUNNING! Both are in used but excellent condition. The fountain pen has a medium 18kt nib and comes in the iconic "crystal tomb" case with Tibaldi bottle of ink (not pictured). I am searching for the pencil box but cannot guarantee its existence.

    This is absolutely fantastic celluloid, at first sight the color appears to be brown, but look closer in the right light, and you'll see that it's actually a deep, dark red. You'll also notice that the flecks of material contained in it are actually three-dimensional; iridescent chunks trapped like flies in amber
    within the translucent celluloid. The fountain pen uses a vacuum pump filling system, which is similar to that of a Parker Vacumatic. Unscrew the spring-loaded blind cap, which pops out about half an inch, dunk the nib in the ink, and pump the cap three or four times. You can feel (and hear) the ink being sucked rapidly into the barrel. Once the pen's full, slowly push the cap towards the barrel and screw it back into place. (This paragraph has been taken from an independent review of the pen).

    $800 plus shipping for both.

    In the future would you please combine your listings into a single post. At present, of the 20 listings on the first page of the classifieds, half of them are yours. It is unfair to other sellers.

    I had one of these a few years ago and loved it. If the price were closer to $400 Id snap it up....

    $400 is about $50 to $100 short of the pen alone. This is a set that includes the pencil. Well worth it!
