... I do like the little ugly duckling pen with the back sticking out for the whimsy.
I do like it as well, but the cap is no porcelain and not made by Meissen and the "sticking out back" is supposed to be the duck bill.
They were only made as classique line fountain pens and ballpoint pens and belong to the "Fairy Tale" collection together with the "Princess of the Pea" and was discontinued just one year after the launch because the classique size of these pens were designed for the ladies and what do you think a lady would have done if she got a present from her lover/partner/husband which carries a name like these two sets?!?
right, the sales were not very successful. ...
