Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Stipula Etruria Alter Ego Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with its Stipula presentation box and stamped information booklet – confirming first purchase on 14th November 2020. The pen been carefully used and is presented in overall excellent condition (a bit of rhodium-plating loss on the nib).
This Etruria is crafted from ‘Alter Ego’ celluloid, which has a brown / orange colour scheme with black veins running throughout the materal. The trim is sterling silver
The pen is fitted with a 14k extra fine nib and it’s a piston filler – Stipula pistons tend to be a little tighter and they also operate in the other way to most other brands, anti-clockwise to fill, clockwise to empty.
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Extra Fine
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
