Vintage Nib – A. Sommerville & Co. Student Pen


Medium Flex – Round Tip. Made by the English nib maker A. Sommerville & Co –one of the Birmingham manufacturers. This nib is the Sommerville take on the "plume ballon" - a design made by almost every nib maker at some point. The nibs are all very similar. No matter the maker, each one sports an embossed figure of a stylized hot-air balloon on the shaft. Perhaps they were favoured by young aeronauts. We especially like the whimsical figure of the student on the box. This nib has a medium flex and sharp point, giving medium line variation and great ease of use. Dip pen. Fits standard pen holder. Price is for a single nib, box not included.
