Brause Belle Epoque Calligraphy Set

Brause Belle Epoque Calligraphy Set

Sorry, this item has sold.

This quality calligraphy set contains one teal colored wood nib holder decorated with an Belle Epoque-inspired metal embossed band and a Brause "greatest hits" set of six professional-quality calligraphy nibs. These are some fantastic nibs to get you started in both monoline (Copperplate) Calligraphy and in Unical or Gothic-style calligraphy. The monoline nibs also work great for pen & ink drawing and stippling.

This calligraphy starter kit comes on cardstock with an envelope and a information booklet. The nibs and materials are of professional-artist quality.

The nibs included are:

• One (1) Brause Blue Pumpkin ("Steno") Nib, No. B361 - This Nib has a very fine point, is highly elastic, has a high ink capacity. This produces a thin line and the ink flow is high and excellent. One of the best all-around pen nibs made.
• One (1) Brause Rosen (Rose) Calligraphy Nib, No. 76 - Strong, yet super flexible, fine point, with rose embossed design. A vintage nib from Brause reintroduced several years ago. This is an excellent all-around nib for Copperplate writing, drawing and flourishes.
• One (1) Brause Arrow Extra Fine Point Nib, No. 66 - Also called “Arrow”nib. Very smooth reaction, highly elastic, high ink capacity. Favorite for pointed pen work and drawing.
• One (1) Brause Citofein Nib -The Brause Cito Fein gold colored steel nib has a 0.3mm very fine point, half elastic, with a precise writing style. Good for monoline lettering.
• One (1) Brause Plakat 5mm Nib - This steel brush gold-plated folded metal nib is perfect for making large letters.
• One (1) Brause Banzug Small Square No. 180 nib 2mm - Square nibs are perfect for rounded (Roman, Italic, Gothic) writing, with an ink reservoir on the top. Unique for the sharpness of its angles and the precision of its upstrokes, the Bandzug nib yields incomparable Gothic letters.

Pair this set with some of our quality European calligraphy and dip pen inks and some of our calligraphy practice pads or calligraphy paper found elsewhere in our Etsy Shop.
