Description

The butterflies depicted on our colorful pen are adapted from an early nineteenth-century coverlet in the Museums collection, which was made in China for the American market (probably Canton, ca. 1830). Skillfully embroidered in polychrome silks, the crimson silk coverlet features a field of varied butterflies fluttering around a basket of flowers, deep borders of garden scenes, and fringe on all four sides.

Ballpoint, black ink, medium point type, 1mm tip. Twist action. Brass barrel and clip with printed lacquer and gold overlay. 5 1/4''L. Gift boxed.

Refillable. Uses Schmidt P900 or standard Parker refill.
