About Esterbrook Estie Rollerball Pen - Sea Glass with Gold Trim
“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” - Jacques Cousteau.
Timeless takes time. And so it is with the coveted coastal treasures that wash ashore during low tides all over the world, known as sea glass. Shaped over many sunrises and sunsets, these bits of coloured glass drift for as many as two hundred years, weathering storms in the salt water, tossing and turning. Mother Nature’s own polishing that gives them their characteristically smooth, frosted texture.
Prominent in the Northeastern United States, beaches along the shores of New Jersey and New York can be found teeming with these heirlooms and artefacts of whiskey and spirits, trinkets, medicine bottles, dinnerware, jam jars, old tail lights and if fortune finds you, a piece of an antique ink bottle.
First used decoratively at the turn of the last century, beachcombers seek out these little gems giving credence to the statement that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A bounty of colours ranging from amber to green, black to pale pink and clear frost to the rarest turquoise blue, make sea glass a highly collectable commodity.
To celebrate the nearby shores of Esterbrook’s birthplace, the Sea Glass has been added as a Core colour in the Estie range.
The Estie is a tribute to the Esterbrook brand and its storied history. Short for Esterbrook, the Estie evokes a feeling of 1930s nostalgia; a time when fountain pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
This pen is made of blended and turned acrylic with a Sea Glass mix of colours and a highly-polished finish.
A sleek clip provides a clean accent for the cap and slides easily on to one’s shirt pocket
Each Estie Sea Glass pen comes packaged in a cloth covered gift box and with Esterbrook's custom logo Eternity polishing cloth.
