Fred Faggionato Pétrarque mottled hard rubber fountain pen
Fred FAGGIONATO has chosen to baptize his first creations by the name of Pétrarque, a famous Italian man of the 14th century, very well given to literature, who spent part of his life in France in the Vaucluse area.
His pen is what one could call « flat top » - of medium size, with a very pure line, gold plated and satin varnished, which gives it just that touch of modernism; an object that did not disappear in the collection of the 20’s, especially because of its “ebonite” (hard rubber) finishing touch in “woodgrain hard rubber wood-grain finishing touch.
Fred FAGGIONATO made a choice, and a fortunate one, in abstaining from all sorts of “luxurious ornaments”. Therefore, his pen is quite an authentic one. The cap is not garnished: no useless golden touch. He understood the essential, which is that a pen is not that which glistens, but that which is soberly esthetic and writes well!
There are different finishing touches available: several colors of ebony, grained or not, and galalithe (gala lithic) (pierre de lait) of an ivory color, different resins of different tones, bright, gleaming, transparent - or opaque.
