14175: Van Cort reproduction of Thomas Jefferson's fountain pen in box: heavy (38 g) solid sterling silver, 12.1 cm long, based upon the so-called Bion style reservoir pen made for Jefferson in 1824 by William Cowan, a watchmaker in Richmond, Virginia (references here); this copy made in limited numbers, authorized by Monticello. Plated nib, could be replaced with an older dip nib or quill slip for better historical effect. There is no real feed system, so don't expect modern fountain pen performance (the pen was described by the Jefferson Foundation as a dip pen). Original pens of this type are extremely rare and sell for thousands of dollars.
