2014 Launching the First Celluloid Fountain Pen of the Romillopens Collection
The introduction of celluloid as material for the manufacturing of pens, almost a century ago, triggered the so-called Golden Age of Fountain Pens. The endless colors and patterns options provided by the adoption of celluloid transformed totally the classic style of the early fountain pens.
While the original attractiveness of providing a new full range of colors in the fountain pen arena, soon technical problems, such as the stability of the material, were limiting the future of celluloid pens in the history of fountain pens.
…. but, all of this is history.
