A ballpoint pen decorated with Celtic art.
Celtic art is the European decorative style that emerged from Ireland to Romania in 500 BC to AD 100. Celtic craftsmen adapted ideas from nature to produce wonderfully sophisticated designs. Spirals, crosses and entwined plant motifs were woven into intricate knotwork patterns.
Inspired by these, this pen features a spirals pattern known as a triskeles motif, which is made up of three interlocked spirals. The triskeles was a sacred motif to the Celts because they used a triple cycle for the seasons, and for many magical patterns and ritual blessings.
The pen is made from stainless steel and is filled with black ink. Designed in Cornwall, England, it it made using the latest pen technology.
Ideal as a small gift idea, the pen is supplied in a gift box and is suitable for engraving.
