Manuscript ML 1856 Fountain Pen Northern Lights Zoom Manuscript ML 1856 Fountain Pen Northern Lights

Manuscript celebrates its long and successful history in pen manufacturing by launching the 1856 luxury fountain pen.

Northern Lights is a striking dark blue with pearlescent depth, and with bright yellow lines mixed in. The beautiful translucent resin used in these pens gives a real depth to the barrel and cap, with the pattern changing as it catches the light, giving a feel of the night sky.

Crown logo on the end of the cap has been used since D.Leonardt & Co were appointed as penmakers to the kings of Italy, Spain and Portugal, in the 19th century. The family business continues as Manuscript today.

Manuscript are best known for their nibs and calligraphy pens, so you might expect the nibs to be a little different here. Along with the standard Medium 'handwriting' nib, there are the options of 1.1mm or 1.5mm italic nibs, for a bit more style. Italic nibs do need a little more care when writing, especially if you're not used to them, but they reward with more varied lines, and can be used for beautiful calligraphy.

Simple metal clip with '1856' stamped into it.

Length: 139mm capped, 123mm uncapped. 180mm posted - we'd recommend using it unposted. Weight: 20g.

Supplied in a gift box with explanatory leaflet, two ink cartridges and a converter.
