.A Siren, as mythlogoy points out, is
a seductress whose song is irresistable. Parthenope was
the most beautiful of the sirens who gave her life in
the name of her love. Her body was said to have washed
ashore at what is now Naples. Delta's Parthenope collection
is eight pens deep. Each pen offering is perfectly balanced
for long-term performance and legendary beauty. The Rollerball
advances the easy-to-find refill with a simple quarter
turn. The Fountain Pen features Delta's Millenium, 18kt
Gold Nib. The cap threads at both ends of the barrel.
Parthenope writing instruments are available in 4 epoch
colors: Quartz White, Golden Blue, Tortoise Brown, and
Coral red. The entire collection is accented in gleaming,
Black resin with vermeil trim.
The Parthenope fountain pen features a cartridge/converter
filling system and is available in extra-fine, fine, medium,
or broad nib sizes.
