The opulent Trianon Travel Calligraphy set comes with an ivory colored pen for holding one of the eleven (11) calligraphy nibs included in the set. A Venetian hand-blown glass pen is the other writing implement in this lovely set. This is an elegant calligraphy starter kit.
Five .71 oz bottles of different colored inks are included in the Trianon Travel set. The colors are Frantic Flamingo (Magento), Burnt Sienna (Reddish Brown), Rain Forest (Dark Green), Starlit Sky (Dark Blue), and Pitch Black (Black). An intricate brass magnifying glass finishes the boxed set.
The set comes boxed in a high quality, black wooden box which is slightly distressed to give it character. An elegant Turkish rug pattern adorns the inside lid, and a gold-tone feather is affixed to the outside lid. The box closes with a brass latch.
Venetian Glass Pens originated on the island of Murano (famous for its glass blowers) in the 1600's. These pens are made entirely of hand-blown glass and twist like a corkscrew at the end of the nib. The twist holds much more ink than a regular metal nibbed dip pen and allows the user to write an entire sentence in one dip!
The Trianon Travel Calligraphy set makes an elegant gift for any calligraphy enthusiast or artist. It also makes a fantastic bridesmaid gift or graduation gift.
Pen nibs may be silver or brass colored or both. This set is great for beginners as a starter set, but is not professional artist-grade. If you are looking for a finer, artist-grade set please choose one of our calligraphy sets by Manuscript, J. Herbin or Brause located within the Drawing and Calligraphy section of our shop.
The box measures 7.25" x 10.25" x 2.5”, it weighs 2lb 7.5oz. (Box in photo looks greenish blue, but is actually black.)
