Each Ferris Wheel Press Brush Fountain Pen is handmade from copper, brass, and stainless steel for a well balanced yet substantial writing experience. Each intricate detail of the grip is engraved to enhance the tactility and feedback of a design that is bold as brass.
The Brush Fountain Pen takes its namesake and familiarity from the contoured
silhouette of an artist's paintbrush. This shape was designed for good balance in-hand, while remaining comfortable over a long period of time. These characteristics are valued by every modern day writer or illustrator wanting to use inspiring tools that function as well as they look.
Drawing parallels to the ferrule, traditionally a metal section that holds the bristles of a brush, the grip section of the Brush fountain pen plays the important role of securing the nib. The spirited etchings on the grip are inspired by the mechanical components of vintage printmaking studio equipment including the flywheel of a 1912 Pearl letterpress and a fully functional Underwood typewriter – the 'original' modern method of typesetting. The fanning geometric lines are analogous to the type hammers of a typewriter, each carrying it's own miniature metal type block, waiting to be activated. Similar to the way in which the carriages of a ferris wheel support its riders, the cylindrical carriage of a typewriter transports its paper in a horizontal and circular fashion.
Please note this pen has been designed and balanced to write with the cap un-posted. Do not post the cap onto the pen when writing as the threads of the cap can damage the pen finish.
Spring Violette is one of the 2020 Summer Trio of fountain pens launched by Ferris Wheel Press. Other finishes available - Duck Duck Goose and Piccadilly Pink.
Supplied with an ink converter, velvet carrying pouch and gift box.
