This is the Taccia Staccato in Starry Night.
The Taccia is a modern fountain pen and uses a cartridge/converter filling system. This is a large pen, it measures 6" capped and weighs 28 gms empty and the same filled, by my pitiful little scale.
Taccia is an American pen company located in Fountain Valley, California, but from what I'm able to tell the pens are imported from China. But that really doesn't matter, this is a beautiful pen and it is a marvelous writer.
The following is from the Taccia website:
" Welcome to TACCIA!
My name is Shu-Jen Lin, and I founded Taccia on my core belief that pens should be affordable, stylish, and well-built. I believe pens are the perfect accessory – fun to collect, display, and wear, and an intimate form of communication often lost in this internet age.
I strive to develop and produce pens that cater to both males and females, young and old, for all occasions – casual and formal. A pen, like a watch or a car, can help define a person’s style. Taccia currently carries several colorful and attractive lines, and we will be releasing many more in the future.
I’m sure you will find the right Taccia pen for you. Please browse through our website to find the Taccia pen that fits you best. All Taccia products carry a lifetime warranty.
With My Warmest Regards,
Taccia International, Inc."
I really like the President's sentiment and I think that he has accomplished his intent.
This pen has a lovely two-toned steel nib with gold plating and gold furnishings.
How does it write? Beautifully!
