The La Traviata familiy of boxes has been my most popular, perhaps because it provides good capacity in a small package. The La Traviatas come in five sizes: Divino, Favorito, Animado, Radiante, and Intripedo. This one is a Animado, which measures 7 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 3 inches, and has a capacity of 12 fountain pens in individual compartments.
I’ve fitted this box with my latest style of pen compartment, the “saddle” type, which makes the pens appear to “float in the air” as one person put it. It is finished with burgundy suede cloth for a soft protective surface for your pens.
The exterior of the box is stained with MinWax “Gunstock” then varnished with three coats of MinWax polyurethane, hand-rubbed with 0000 steel wool between coats for a satin finish. The bottom is covered with a 2mm foam pad to protect your desk or table top.
This box is priced at $45 plus shipping. Please email me with your location for a shipping price quote.
