A Chatterly Delta Stantuffo Star Cage in Marmo Incrinato.

I have wanted that celluloid since I first laid eyes on it. I

was surprised that he had it and jumped all over it.

The Marmo Incrinato is beautiful indeed. I bought one from Bryant a few years ago. You will love it.

 

If you search back through SBRE Brown's videos, you will find a review of the very pen I bought.

Visconti Merry Go Round... should be here on Monday, BUT I will be away for work starting on Monday. I wont be home until Friday, so I have self-inflicted a longer waiting time grrrr.

I have been looking for the pen for the past several months, but had no luck, and I was asking around at the Philly Pen Show. Only one retailer had it in stock, but it was at the store, all the way in California... I paid for it there and then, so that I could get the pen show discount and free shipping LOL.

The pen has been shipped, started the 2700 miles journey across the continent, and- OMG I cannot wait!!!!!

Let's see....
A PIF from a fellow member of a Kaweco Sport and case (no info on nib or color) which should arrive any day.

New barrel and section for one of my P45's, which should arrive tomorrow. And next week a Parker 51 demi Vacumatic. Either burgundy or cordovan Brown. Will have to check date and all that. Supposed to be a 1948 pen.

I'm waiting for two orders: A Lamy Safari in petrol blue, from Pen & Paper which I'm not at all concerned about...

And a 1969 Sheaffer Imperial Touchdown from Heritage Collectibles. Which hasn't turned up yet, I have no purchase confirmation for, and I am very concerned about...!

Okay. Here are the photos.....

A red Kaweco ICE Sport with M nib and case plus mini ballpoint.

A new barrel and section for one of my P45's which made a trip through the laundry sometime ago. This changes color from burgundy to green. I would call it a forest green. I have before and after photos and the group shot. The nib is a 14k EF.

Kaweco Liliput Eco Brass Fine Nib with the Kaweco Leather Pouch. Was looking for a sturdy small EDC pen and it fit the bill. That ends the acquisition hiatus. Over a year since a new pen joined the stable, let the floodgates open.
Keep your nose clean and your nib wet.

I'm awaiting the following Pelikans:

M805 Streseman (F)

M800 (M) [all black, gold trim]

M805 (F) Blue and black


I guess I've fallen pretty hard for Pelikan.
