Generic Quill Pen
Quantity:  3.25

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 1800's. 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.

This real feather quill comes with a biro nib. It measures approximately 12inchs / 30cm long and is supplied in one of six colours. It is packed in a clear polythene bag with a full colour information card, describing the history of the pen.
