Description:

Set of three large Conway Stewart black resin fountain pens overlaid with sterling silver filigrees inspired by the work of Alphonse Mucha. The filigree work is incredibly ornate, with sinuous Art Nouveau lines and finely engraved flourishes, and this set of pens may represent Henry Simpole's highest achievement in fine bespoke penmaking. Fully hallmarked with assay marks and Mr. Simpole's "H.C.S." imprint. One extra-fine and two medium 18K gold Conway Stewart nibs. Two outer boxes, three lacquered wood display boxes lined with cream satin and red velvet, two limitation cards signed by Henry Simpole. Limited Edition: the pens are not numbered, but it is believed that fewer than ten examples of each were made. Excellent condition, not inked.
