France is a small country ( :happyberet:  ;) ). There is no real Pen Show, but there are small meetings collectors. 
 
We organized a meeting in Nantes and we had the chance to meet fifteen fountain pens lovers from all over France and even Switzerland. There were so few people, but this is exceptional in France to see so many at once! 
 
We are fortunate to have several talented European manufacturers of fountain pens: André Mora (Oldwin) Fountainbel (Conid), Fred Faggionato, ...
 
Fred Faggionato is a manufacturer of fountain pen lacquered with urushi, with ebonite, celluloid, wood, ... 
 
He sent us some pens to discover and admire. 
 
I did a big review of these pens on the French forum collectors fountain pens :
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I wanted to share these fountain pens in this international forum!
 
 

Firstly: the family photo :

You can find information on the website of Fred Faggionato :

For information on the size, weight and price of pens do not hesitate to contact him. I can not really answer because I had to return the pens after the meeting  :wallbash: .

 

 

I apologize for my poor English. 
But I hope you enjoy discovering great fountain pens!

Yes. They are handsome pens. Normally I am repelled by luxurious pens, but these attract me. If I may in honor of France make a French cultural reference, even though I am a simple American, the pens remind me of the survey of eighteenth-century art and decorative objects to be found in the Musee Cognacq-Jay, in Paris. (Sorry for defective spelling here.) Some of the objects, in the ormolu-clock category, say to me "Those people needed a revolution." Others, of the same century and bought by the same elevated class, look rigorously tasteful to me, what a mathematician might call elegant, and suggest to me that there must have been families in which one cousin had an extreme-Habsburg if not Romanov taste, while the other cousin spent money as if the money were in good hands. M. Faggionato's pens look as if his clients' other possessions might also appeal to me.

Wonderful and beautiful pens, no doubt.

Apart from owning one of them it is also important writing with them. Does anyone have any experience writing with them?

I mean, the bock nib is not on top of my list of perfect nibs.

Looking forward to your replies

Bram
