Krone Amelia Earhart Historical Sterling Silver Limited Edition Fountain Pen
This pen is pre-owned and does not come with box, but does come with papers. It is equipped with an 18k Medium nib.
Krone honors Amelia Earhart with this Historical Limited Edition series. She lived an adventurous life as a pilot, feminist, social activist, working woman and champion of commercial aviation. She was not going to live a conventional life and became one of the most popular public figures of her day, which marked the beginning of the era of celebrity. And she died doing the thing she loved most – flying, which was her wish. This spectacular writing instrument is comprised of unique, elegant, three-dimensional slate blue and black herringbone celluloid.
Crowning the cap is a sterling silver coin, simulating the nose of one of her aircrafts. In the center of the coin is a piece of fabric from Amelia Earhart’s actual Lockheed Vega 5B wing. The clip is sterling silver and is as streamlined as the wings of her planes. Around the center of the barrel is a sterling silver band with her signature deeply engraved. The sterling silver blind cap has one of her most famous quotes encircling it, which reads, “Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.”
