It is not necessarily my favourite pen in terms of writing experience, but when it comes to beauty it is the one that jumps to my mind. I just marvel at it each and every time.

Wow! Never seen one like that, what's it called?

How about your top three? Five?

I can't narrow it down that far or even close to that so here are just a few random samples.

Wow, some real beauties there, Jar! The stand-out for me is that green floral maki-e - it's gorgeous.

Hello Jar,

 

You posted a pen, perhaps Standard brand.  Fat with gray marble and a gold stripe.

 

As you know, I started a thread about fat sections.  Your pen looks like a winner.  Please tell us more about it.

 

Thank you,

 

Alan

It's the Faber-Castell caps that get me. They should be ridiculous but actually they're beautiful. The maki-e pens win the Jar collection beauty contest according to the camera, but a more modest pen can be spectacular in the hand. Sensational selection.

Hi, it is the Montblanc Dumas, the correct signature.  The pen is based on the dimensions of the Montblanc 139.

Modest really can rule and be spectacular. I really enjoy very simple but very well made designs as well.

What is the second (uncapped) pen?  I like the fat section.

Thank you,

Jar, your photographs and your fountain pens are mesmerizing--all of them!  What kind of pen is this blue one (found with the painting of the bird and morning glories)?

There are simply too many, but OK I will play along. I think my most beautiful pen would be the Waterman 42 below. Honorable mention to the Astoria and the lapis Parker Duofold.

Really nice set, I keep gravitating towards Carènes and that iconic blue Pelikan.
