Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this glorious Visconti Proprozione Burlwood Celluloid Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with an IZODS presentation box. The pen has been carefully used over the years and is presented in overall excellent condition – it’s just returned having the filling system serviced by Visconti in Italy.

 

 

 

The Proporzione Burlwood is a limited edition of only 1618 pens and this is number 0009. Taking its inspiration from the Divine Proportion of 1:1.618 (also known as the golden ratio), the design is truly something to behold.

 

 

 

 

 

This was the first of the Divina series, released in 2007. The barrel and cap are crafted from wonderful OMAS burlwood celluloid, with the angled inlayed lines being sterling silver. On these early Divina pens, you also get a small ink viewing window.

 

 

 

 

 

The pen features a simple ‘touchdown’ style filler – you simply push the button at the end of the barrel, pull up the rod, place the nib in an ink bottle and push the rod back down to fill (wait a few seconds to fill and repeat 2 or 3 times for a complete fill)! It’s one of our favourite filling systems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib.

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”.
