Women's footwear has embraced more variations since 1900 than in the entire previous history of fashion. Balancing function and fantasy, the great designers of the twentieth century created some of the most beautiful shoes ever made, adapting styles from the past with a contemporary sensibility. The images on the pen are based on - and capture the charm and grace of - actual shoes now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute.
The highlight of the pen is the smooth twist-action ballpoint system, activated by turning the tip cone. The Metropolitan Museum of Art logo appears on the cap top. Brass base metal body with heavy chrome plate accents.
Handsomely packaged in a color coordinated paperboard gift box. Uses the smooth writing Waterford Ballpoint refills. One refill is included, installed in the pen. Limited 1 Year Warranty.
