Our second exclusive collaboration with the Herbert Pen Company, this limited edition Maymont fountain pen screams spring. Each hand-turned pen is made of a custom resin that features swirls of bright lime green with vibrant purple, with hints of royal blue as well. No two pens are exactly alike.
The Maymont model features a cap that screws to open, and posts securely onto the back of the barrel when writing It comes with a standard international converter and two blue short standard international cartridges, and can be converted to eyedropper fill. It is completed with a smooth-writing silver #6 JoWo nib.
Each pen is individually numbered out of 300. It comes with a Rickshaw Bagworks single pen slip with a polyester canvas fabric to match the pen, and a plush purple interior.
Both the Herbert Pen Company and the Goulet Pen Company are based out of Richmond, Virginia. The Maymont pen model is named after the local Maymont park and gardens. We named this material Belladonna after the exotic plant (also known as deadly nightshade) that shares its colors.
We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here. We’re unable to honor any preferential pattern requests at this time.
