The Conklin Pen Company was established in 1898 during the golden era of fountain pens, and is still regarded as one of the most prominent pen manufacturers today. Deco, a design era that began in the mid-1920s, at the height of Conklin's fountain pen business, was a large influence on the modern art world from architecture to fashion. Conklin pens were no exception, as they were a significant contribution to the creative new age.
The Stylograph collection is designed and based upon the original and timeless Conklin models from the 1930s and brought into the new era with bright colors and unique finishes. The Stylograph Mosaic combines a historic heritage of extraordinary art form with an outstanding writing performance passed through generations of Conklin writing instruments.
Mosaic is an art form that creates images using small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials, assembled together to form an artwork. The earliest examples of art created using mosaic consisted of pieces of colored stones, shells and ivory; the artworks date back to the second half of 3rd millennium BCE and were located at temple building in Ubaid, Mesopotamia. The Stylograph Mosaic is made of very rare and beautiful acrylic resins which gives the satisfaction of holding a work of art in your hands. Delicately combined mosaic fragments bring unique colors and patterns to the design of this exquisite writing instrument. Each element and color is carefully paired together to create a seamless symphony of colors that evoke the historical heritage of the art deco art movement.
The pen features Conklin's elegant clip, perfectly balanced and designed to fit easily to thin or thick pocket materials with just a simple touch of the hand. Each pen is hand-made and therefore, no two pens are exactly alike. The Stylograph Mosaic is available in fountain and ballpoint pens. The ballpoint pen activates with a twist mechanism and accepts standard parker style ballpoint or gel refills. Each Conklin pen features a lifetime warranty and is sold in a luxurious gift box.
