The Waterford Marquis Claria was one of our customers' favorites. It has now been retired. We have sold maybe +10,000 of the Claria over the years. It’s a favorite for Corporate Gifting because Claria laser engraves perfectly. Company logos display brilliantly.
A deep lacquer finish and chrome appointments assure lasting value. The Claria is a twist-top deployment ballpoint and is renowned for its smooth action and great weight in the hand; perfectly balanced. Select either blue or black. Take a close look at the wide range of colorful refills when you order your Claria ballpoint, they're astonishing.
The new Beaumont Collection from Waterford has a very subtle reference to this iconic crystal pattern. Only trained eyes may notice it. At the base of the gold-toned top, below the Waterford name, is a refined circle of this popular crystal design. The overall look of this tortoise and gold color pen is so striking the pattern fits right in. The steampunk-style rounded top and articulated clip also bring to mind "space age" designs from the 50s and 60s. Select a bi-color steel nib with a medium point for your fountain pen. Both this fountain pen and the matching rollerball have a screw-on cap. The twist-top ballpoint utilizes any Parker-style refill in a plethora of colors, ink types and point sizes.
Daily writing chores become a bit easier when you enjoy your pen. Some find pleasure in the way it writes and some find added pleasure in the way it looks. The Waterford Celestial ballpoint certainly meets both desires. The light-weight Japanese resin is flecked with black, blue, cream and gold. A simple twist-action deploys the point of any Parker-style refill. Customize your writing experience with three different point sizes and ink types and more than ten different ink colors.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Accessory Collection incorporates intricately detailed interpretations of some of the Museum's most famous works of art. All in the shape and functionality of a fine writing instrument. Detailed descriptions of the artisans and works they inspired are seen by clicking the individual pens. The twist ballpoint is refilled with a variety of ink types and colors. Each pen is packaged in a simple, yet elegant and decorative presentation box with a brief text about the original work or art.
The new Nights collection brings that classic sensibility to the modern era with a stunning, yet highly affordable design in either Orange or Purple. Crafted from quality handmade resins, the Duragraph is substantial in size, yet not so large to be unwieldy in the hand.
Offered at an astounding $65, the Duragraph fountain pen continues to stand for value. The stainless-steel nib is available in Fine, Medium or Stub nib grades. The Duragraph fountain pen offers the ideal choice for your individual handwriting style. The cap’s top is embellished with the ‘Conklin Est. 1898’ logo and the cap’s band is engraved in the traditional Duragraph script font. The fountain pen fills via standard cartridge or converter, which is included. The matching ballpoint accepts standard Parker style refills. Dozens of fountain pen ink or ballpoint refills are available and shown with the pen.
