This is the top quality Cross Townsend "Year of the Rat" special edition Fountain Pen, part of the Chinese Zodiac series.
2020 is the Year of the Rat, and Cross have produced a stunning Townsend Fountain Pen to commemorate it. The brass barrel is finished in hand-polished rich blue lacquer with deep-etched engravings and 23ct gold-plated inlays and appointments. The pen is fitted with a Medium 18ct solid gold nib for which I have not done a write test to preserve its unused status.
It is brand new with its original packaging including its outer sleeve, box, Converter and cartridge, and all the original paperwork including the manufacturers warranty.
