The Marlen Basilea fountain pen is dedicated to the Swiss city of Basel, its foundation goes back to the first century BC, when the earliest fortified settlements were built on the Münsterhügel (Minster Mount). But a settlement had existed even earlier, in Celtic times, on the Rhine bend where the northern districts of Greater Basel now extend. Basel Basilea first received a mention in Roman history in 374 AD. About 450, the Alemanni arrived. At the end of the 5th century Basel came into Frankish possession, and then in 912 it passed to Burgundy, and in 1032 went with the latter to become part of the German Empire.
This relatively large size fountain pen comes with bold color and it is constructed in resin acetate with solid 925 sterling silver clips and bands. The exceptional piston-fill fountain pen has a large, steel nib that will glide smoothly while writing with it.
