  1. IN PRAISE OF THE OLD STYLE VISCONTI VAN GOGH “MAXI” FOUNTAIN PEN Visconti are a Florentine pen manufacturer founded on 20 October 1988 by two friends who decided to make a business of their passion for fountain pens. The two founders, Luigi Poli and Dante del Vecchio are stars of the long tradition of Italian pen manufacturing. They succeeded in remaining at the top of a highly competitive international market for over 30 years, which is an outstanding achievement when one considers the sad demise of OMAS or Delta. Throughout their history, Visconti have set new standards for imaginative an
  2. I've got the itch to customize my Van Gogh Shoes FP and bought an Onyx jewel. Logo MPS comes right off, no problem. New jewel goes right on ... wait .... problem. In the middle of the magnet is a raised polymer dot that seems to go through the magnet. Since the new onyx magnet is smooth / flat on the bottom (the logo medallion is convex) it will not rest flush with the cap inset and can easily fall off / be removed with my fingers without a magnet tool. Looking for assistance here. Should I drill a small recess to accommodate? Should I razor off the dot? Couldn't find anyone with the sam
  3. Pen Pit Stop : Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that arrives at the pit stop today is the "Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night". Visconti i
  4. I have been steadily collecting most of the 'new' Van Gogh models, and recently bought a Vincent's Chair, which is gorgeous. But whereas the earlier releases had the painting on which the pen was based etched on the cap band, this one doesn't. Seems such a shame that they changed it. Also there is now the Red Vineyard, which wasn't included in the set of 12 pens released when the model was first introduced. What's going on? And can anyone say how it compares with Room in Arles, which is one of my favourites but seems quite similar. Thanks!
  5. Hello all! I've been an outside observer on this excellent forum for years now, but this is my forst post! I have a question for you. I need you help identifying whether or not a Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night I recently purchased is a fake. I purchased it off of Ebay from a company called Truphae, Inc. I could not find any bad reviews of them prior to buying from them, but, no bad reviews do not necessarily equate to a stellar company. I received the pen today and several things struck me: 1.) the top of the cap has an unusual Visconti logo. I have a Rembrandt and it looks a bit dif

  8. A new pen is now available in the Visconti Van Gogh Collection - Shoes. https://www.penchalet.com/blog/visconti-van-gogh-shoes-pen-collection/ Vincent Van Gogh painted many still lifes of shoes and boots early in his career during the time he was living in Paris. This painting, titled "Shoes", was the only painting of footwear during his time in Aryles. The shoes with the laces undone are seen on the red tile floor of the Yellow House he resided in Aryles. Visconti continues its tribute to Van Gogh's work with the US release of a new pen; Shoes. Visconti has worked hard to formulate pal

    Seeking Visconti Advice

    Background: Thinking about adding my first Visconti to a small (medium?) sized collection of five or six dozen higher-end Parkers, Pilots, Montblancs, Lamys, and Pelikans. Mostly post-WWII, but a few older classics. I write with virtually all of my pens. Imagine that! WRITING with good fountain pens. I'm just odd that way. I also make telephone calls with my iPhone. This isn't a good time for me to purchase an Opera, or any gold nabbed Visconti, unless I run into a "can't walk away" bargain, so I'm thinking about beginning with a van Gough. I like the looks of the red and blue resins in the

    Visconti Van Gogh Pens

    We recently acquired some older Visconti Van Gogh pens from the US distributor. These pens are new and come in a Visconti gift box. Here is what we have Visconti Van Gogh Fountain Pens These are the Maxi size pens with gold nibs. Most are 14k gold but we have a couple 18k gold nibs. The images we have are of the exact pen other than vanilla which we have 3 pens. https://www.penchalet.com/fine_pens/fountain_pens/visconti_original_van_gogh_fountain_pen.html ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Visconti Van Gogh Rollerball Pe
  11. Hi, everyone! I just bought a brand new Van Gogh with a Medium nib, and although it writes smooth and wonderful when it works, it also has hard starts and skips constantly! I'm feeling kind of glum since it cost me almost 300 bucks...and this was my first time buying an expensive fountain pen, too! I have done everything--aligned the tines a little better, flushed it, checked for baby bottom (doesn't look like it has it!) and the only thing I can find off is that the feed is very, very slightly off center from the nib. The only thing that gets it running smoothly for a page or two is if
  12. Hi all, I have a question about the nib of Visconti Van Gogh Maxi ... the solid yellow version (Yellow Mandarin?). I have an oportunity to buy this pen almost new for 200€ but it has the fine nib (14K). I tried broad one and it was perfect, little bit stubbish, what I like a lot. So the question is, which type of nib fits in the Maxi? Is it the screw-in unit or the friction fit nib+feeder in the body? Thanks
  13. Good afternoon Currently a Mont Blanc 146 and a Waterman Carene reside in my collection. I love both these pens, but their standard black and gold finishes sometimes have me pining for something a bit more colourful. I have been eyeing up the Pelikan m800 in green for a while, having read innumerous outstanding reviews of it, but recently I saw the Visconti Van Gogh 'self portrait' model which I thought was absolutely stunning. Obviously the Pelikan is seen as a brilliant pen, a modern 'classic' but the Van Gogh is about £100 cheaper and looks simply incredible. The Pelikan is closer in
  14. Just curious about the nibs on the Visconti pens... I heard that European sizing is a bit different, not sure how though... is their Broad like a Medium? or vice versa? I've been debating a new pen for a while, between a TWSBI 580 and a Monteverde Prima... then while researching I kept seeing Visconti's name show up, and outta my price range so never really looked, but, made the mistake of watching a few videos and looking online, and that Starry Night pen in the Van Gogh series has me hooked. Maybe it's time to get a really good pen, vs a few mediocre pens. I'm looking for a nib that i
  15. A thousand apologies for posting this if it's already been discussed before. I just got the Starry Night Van Gough with a fine point nib. Tried a variety of inks and its just too dang wet for my tastes. I'd like to "tighten up the tines" and try to adjust the nib a bit, but can't seem to get it out of the pen. This particular model (I understand there are more than one) has the feeder/nib that unscrews from the barrel, but once removed, there is no obvious way to get the nib/feeder out of the tube that I just unscrewed from the barrel. (including picture of the nib/feeder/tube assembly

    Visconti: A View To A Pen

    Here is a view of my first generation VIsconti Van Gogh. Note the pre-bridge style clip with clip screw, the warm resin barrel. 14 k nib. Writing sample attached. Any comments will be appreciated!
  17. I recently bought a Visconti fountain pen, and would be grateful for the benefit of your assembled wisdom in confirming (or refuting) my guess as to what exactly I have acquired. See description, followed by pictures. The pen was sold as a diamond jubilee limited edition, new and unused, sold as a unwanted gift. It comes in an original box, with the booklet in the box drawer, but with no warranty card. According to what I can find online, diamond jubilee pens were created as fountain pens (with a crown on the cap) and as ballpoints (modelled on the new Van Gogh, I suspect). The LE comes in

    Visconti Van Gogh Nibs?

    I want to pick up a new nib for my Visconti Van Gogh (2004)--looking for broad and/or medium. I don't like how the fine nib writes. Where's the best place online to buy one? I'm looking for the cheapest and most reputable place.
  19. I have three Visconti roller balls with "Van Gogh" marked on the center ring....two of them (colors Ocean Blue and an unidentified orange/amber) have an arched, flattened clip with "Visconti" on each side. I have a receipt for the Ocean Blue; it is a "Midi" purchased in 2004 for $96.00. No receipt for the orange/amber pen. The receipt for the third pen is shown as "White" but the pen looks more like the "Vanilla" color I find on the internet -- streaky white and tan. It was purchased in 2003 for $135. It has a different clip -- it is much slimmer and has "Visconti" only once on the topside

    Visconti Steel Nibs

    Hello Visconti fans, I had a quick question: are all Visconti steel nibs the same? Basically, I'm trying to figure out if there's any difference between Rembrandt and Van Gogh in terms of writing performance, or if the only differences are aesthetic. (This is pretty important since Van Gogh is nearly twice as expensive as Rembrandt!) Just to be clear, I'm referring to the Van Gogh that's currently readily available in a number of online pen stores, and is (I think!) still in production. I believe Visconti has discontinued an older version of Van Gogh. I'm asking because, let's f
