Another impressive offering from luxury writing instrument craftsmen, Bespoke British Pens, comes in the form of Henry Simpole’s 1907 Exhibition Plunger-filler Pen – an undeniably beautiful tribute to British pen-making and one whose history could well be attributed to changing an industry – if not the world!
The 1907 Exhibition Pen spans the course of a century, combining classic design and the latest technical expertise. Here, in a single pen, you’ll find intricate design skills that owe much to the Art Nouveau movement, flawless 21st century craftsmanship in stunning hallmarked silver, exquisite enameling in the style of Carl Fabergé and the epitome of all top-quality writing instruments – an 18ct gold nib which adds a silky-smooth flow to your writing.
Yet for all its external glamour, it’s what lies beneath the surface that holds most interest for today’s pen connoisseurs. For the 1907 Exhibition Pen is ‘powered’ by a plunger-filling ink mechanism that, when it was first introduced in 1905, created a seismic shift in the fledgling fountain pen industry.
