Celtic Green Dyed Maple Burl with Antique Pewter Plating
The pen is handmade from Stabilized Green Dyed Maple Burl. Hard Maple burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood prized for its beauty and rarity. The burl is injected under pressure with green dye and resin to further enhance and stabilize the wood and is then sanded and polished to a glass like finish. The pen hardware is antique pewter plated.
The Celtic is a high-end pen with a unique magnetic cap that easily and securely posts on to the nib and the back of the pen without the use of threads. The pen features the Celtic Knot scrollwork on the tip, clip, and end as well as an emerald green cabochon on the end. The Celtic Knot motif dates back to the 5th century. The pen is approximately 5 5/8" long capped and 6 1/2" long posted. The pen includes a Schmidt premium rollerball with a .6mm ceramic ball and stainless steel tip which allows ink to flow instantly and evenly. The pictured pen (#709) is the pen you will receive and is shipped in a black velour with gold trim gift box usually within 24 hours of the order. Gift boxes are available in the gift box menu. Pen comes with Certificate of Handmade Authenticity and Registration, instructions for care, and written warranty. There is no finer gift to others or yourself than a stunningly beautiful, totally unique (the only one in the world), handmade quality utilitarian object that will be treasured and used for a lifetime.
