These glass pens have a medium-fine point, making them perfect for drawing or writing. They are very easy to use, much easier than a dip pen with a metal nib. You simply need a bottle of ink to dip your pen. Glass pens clean up easily with water.

7 1/2" x 5/8" x 5/8"
We currently have six different glass pen colors in stock:
Red & Yellow
Please choose your color before check-out.
Since these pens are mostly hand-made the colors may vary in each batch and may look slightly different than the ones in our photos.
Glass ink pen design was perfected in during the height of the Renaissance in Venice, Italy. They were invented to solve the problem that many people had with quill pens and wooden dip pens in that the nibs would run out of ink too quickly, causing the writer to interrupt their work by frequently dipping the pen into the inkwell.
These glass pens hold more ink so can write up to half a page with one dip. Perfect for journaling or drawing!
These ingenious pen tips contain spiral grooves on the glass which holds more ink for a continuous flow. Glass pens were made to be dipped into ink bottles or inkwells. Ink also washes easily off of a glass pen and they are very easy to write and draw with because there is no nib or quill to split. (One just has to worry about them shattering if they are dropped.) Because these pens are made of glass, the tip can dull after use, one "sharpens" the pen by gently sanding the tip back into a point with some very fine sandpaper.
The colors are marbled in the traditional Venetian glass blowing style. The entire pen is made of glass. Since these are hand-made items, the colors may vary from the photos.
Our hand-blown pens come in a padded box.
You will receive one pen and one gift box with your order, the inkwells and ink bottles are not included. You can however, purchase ink, paper and inkwells within our Shop!
