Once treasured by European aristocrats, Glass Dip Pens were crafted by master glass-blowers in family-owned foundries in Murano, Italy. Tear Catcher Gifts is pleased to offer authentic Glass Dip Pens from Murano for your writing and collecting pleasure. Each pen is wonderful writing instrument and a unique art object. The perfected glass nibs of these pens will produce a half page of text with a single dip.
Anyone who loves writing will enjoy the elegance and simplicity of this ancient writing style. Writing with a Glass Dip Pen harkens back to an ancient time when writing was a privilege and something accomplished slowly, with great meaning. The traditional use of a glass pen requires the writer to remember the process, dipping the pen with each turning page, taking a moment to reassess thoughts, develop the next idea, and most importantly, allow the sub-conscience mind time to explore new concepts.
Writing colorful letters or changing color to reflect your mood couldn’t be easier. Just rinse the tip, and then dip in the next color. Any standard water-soluble ink will work well. Of course, we offer a selection of authentic Murano inks to accompany your selection.
