2 of the 5 planned direct-for-sale rare and vintage celluloid pens have been finished up and hit the store front today.
Celluloid and it’s variants such as cellulose acetate and cellulose nitrate were precursors to our modern plastics. Typically the material was created in thin sheets that were then spiral wrapped around a mandrel to form a finished tube with a fixed outer and inner diameter. This was the dominate material for the highest end pens from approximately the 1920’s through the early 1950’s when modern plastics started to hit the market.
There is a finite supply of this material left in the world and once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. This is your chance to get a one-of-a-kind custom fountain pen in these vintage materials.
