We regret that this item is not available at this time.
The deeply etched, copper-plated brass barrel of this Limited Edition African American History and Culture Museum Corona Rollerball Pen emulates the ornamental bronze-hued metal lattice covering the exterior of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Officially licensed by the Smithsonian Institution, each pen is individually numbered and packaged in a commemorative gift tube, which doubles as a pen stand. (The limited edition number for each pen is printed on the top band just above the clip.) Capless rollerball design. Twist to deploy. Comes pre-loaded with a black ink cartridge. Only takes Schmidt short capless rollerball refill #P-8127. The Smithsonian logo appears on the top of the pen.
The design of our National Museum of African American History and Culture echoes an openwork design accenting the uppermost part of the Museum's architecture, the corona. The Museum's bronze-clad corona follows the classical column form of base, shaft, and capital. (In the fine artistic tradition of the Yoruba of West Africa, the column, or wood post, was usually crafted with a capital resembling a crown, or corona.) The corona's motifs celebrate intricate ironwork designs created by enslaved African American craftspeople in Charleston and New Orleans. Reaching toward the sky, the corona expresses faith, hope and resiliency.

"This pen pays wonderful homage to the beautiful grillwork of the National Museum of African American History & Culture. It is comfortable to hold and write with and I absolutely love the fact that there is a pen holder using the beautiful packaging. Useful, environmentally correct and not wasteful."
