Mother of pearl eye candy by Ferrari da Varese

Some eye candy for you! I recently sold one of my Botticellis and got another one with plain silver cap instead. Now those two could be twins.

The new one is nicely polished, its older sister has some lovely patina. I really can't decide which I like better.

They both have Bock B nibs, reground to italics. A bit on the heavy side but lovely writers.


  1. Nice pens! I’m not a patina fan. It’s just oxidation, grime; there’s nothing particularly appealing about that. Shine it up and display it in all of its glory :)

  2. Lovely pens, lovely photos of them. Well done!
