Excerpt from Chatterly Luxuries:
This pen is based off of the Opera Master Fountain Pen. It is made from a beautiful swirled resin made popular by Visconti with the Visconti London Fog. The grey resin material is reminiscent of London’s grey smoke hood. While the blue swirled thru the grey around the cap and the body represents the River Thames that runs thru London.
The River Thames is a river that flows through southern England, most notably through London. At 215 miles, it is the longest river entirely in England. The Thames flows through Central London and provides a stunning backdrop to many of the city’s top tourist attractions. The 2,000-year-old river harbors much of London’s history, as well as providing ongoing inspiration for artists, musicians and writers. It now lends itself as inspiration for this new exclusive.
The filling system on these pens are Visconti’s patented Double Reservoir Power filler and hold quite a bit of ink. They also have an ink window so you can see how much ink is in the first reservoir.
These pens come in a beautiful leather box complete with a glass bottle of Visconti Blue ink.
