Thank you Ruben, your celluloids really are candy...

 

Here is another Etruria, not celluloid, nor a piston filler, but it looks good and is likely to become a daily writer.

It's a Stipula Etruria Gallicana Notte di San Lorenzo.

The pen is in acrylic, a deep blue with cracked shiny lighter specks inside the resin.

It's not easy to capture the reflections in a photo, and lighting was not good today, but the material does have some nice depth.

The name comes from a local festivity (San Lorenzo) which takes place on August 10th. In that period of the year (at least here in Europe) it's easier to see shooting stars, due to the particular annually recurring position in the sky of the Perseidis, a group of meteorites, which originate as debris from the Swift-Tuttle comet.

Notte di San Lorenzo (the night of Saint Laurence) is therefore the night in which the deep blue sky is lit up by shooting stars (hence the colour of the pen).

It is one of the new Stipula Etruria Gallicana series, a cheaper range in resin with converter.

There is one important tweak in mine, since I was lucky enough to have a spare 14k Stipula nib, which I immediately swapped in... :D

Size, weight and balance is similar to the Rainbow.

It's not exactly like holdling one of the celluloid pens... but still nice and comfortable as usual with all Etrurias.

It's already full with Waterman Florida Blue (yes, Florida, not Serenity, I had last few ml in the bottle and it seems to have concentrated to very dark, perfect for the pen...) and ready for the office tomorrow...

Great candy shot, RubenDh, of an hyperbolic trio of Etrurias... they are gorgeous when photographed together.

sansenri, your Gallicana is a beautiful pen. I was a bit skeptical, when the Gallicana series was introduced, by the lack of a ring on the cap, when the Etruria was used to have a splendid, three-dimensional, dye cast silver ring.

The Gallicana, however, is growing on me, as I now feel the line of this series absolutely sober, essential, and elegant.

Considering the quite outrageous price of a celluloid Gallicana, I guess that the models in resin are a really valid alternative. Enjoy your pen in good health.

Hint hint, it's for sale for a really nice price here: https://www.pengalle...ith-t-flex-nib/

How do I know? Because I've been drooling over it for quite a while, and it's been in my basket ever since.  :lticaptd:

I can imagine myself writing with it using a matching blue/black ink. Rohrer und Klingner Salix perhaps?

 

 

Thanks, again, sansenri for adding to this thread. I'd love to see this gallicana compared with some of your other Etrurias. I've read earlier that the galicana is a bit girthier and shorter?
