This real feather quill comes with a biro nib. It measures approximately 12 inches long. It is packed in a clear polythene bag with a full color information card, describing the history of the pen. The card tells the story of writing from early man through to 19th century.
The writing quill pen came into use in the seventh century. It was the main writing instrument until the introduction of metallic pens and pen nibs that took over in the 1800s. Some of the best quill pens were made from the flight feathers of geese. The word pen comes from the Latin word Penna which means feather.
Please note that the color of the quill will vary. You may receive a different color than what is pictured.
