The design of this beautiful ballpoint pen is based on the work of Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. Though mainly known for his paintings and murals, Klimt was also a proficient textile designer and worked with the Vienna Workshops in creating beautiful woven and printed fabrics. This printed textile was designed around 1920, and its vibrant spirit and dynamic color live on today at the Museum and in this pen.
A twist mechanism is used to extend and retract the pen, which contains black ink. The pen accepts standard ballpoint refills such as the Schmidt P900 or Parker Golden Touch.
