The "Blackthorn" pattern was designed by textile artist William Morris during the Arts and Crafts Movement of the 19th century. Several colors have been printed around the Tornado's cap and barrel that's finished with a gloss varnish and polished brass accents.
This Tornado Fountainpen is packaged in a commemorative tube with more information about each design included. Each fountain has The Met logo imprinted on the finial and is finished with polished brass trim. Although they are not limited-editions, the top rings are engraved with The Met logo and a numbered serial number. These beautiful designs are a must have for any art lover.
The Retro 51 EXT (extended) Tornado fountain pen is 2.5cm longer than the standard Retro 51 fountain pen, which enables it to hold two standard international ink cartridgesor an ink converter (it comes with both). We also have a selection of bottled ink available here.
