I had a friend tell me about an estate sell as he saw some pens and knew I was into them. This is one of them. The estate sell folks said it was wrapped in some cloth in a dresser drawer.
It looks brand new in MINT condition. The roller ball was the lowest of the print runs at 8000. The foutain pen was 10k and the Ballpoint was 13k.
This one is 301 of 8000. Below is a bit about the pen.Looks at the pictures and see how beautiful it really is. This pen has been inspired by D. Defoe's most famous novel Robinson Crusoe, with the shape of the pen reminding us of the paddle draft which he created to escape from the island. The colour of this pen was taken fromthe wood being the material of the paddle draft and the raft in which he used for his escape.
The clip symblises his companion, the parrot Poll, this is shown of the detailed feather. The fine pattern that can be seen on the cap ring , cone and also the ballpoint tip is inspred from the cover of the first edition of his book.
The small rings are showing the leather stitching pattern, reminding of the cloth he had to sew himself. The pen cap is finished off perfectly with Defoe's signature.
