Feather Pen Works

Dana Ramstedt creates and designs feather pens. These feather pens are functional and will add flair to any historical theme. Some are of a simple design while others sport decorative trim to adhere to a genre or season. The feathers range from goose to peacock and more. She tips them with modern or with vintage metal tips for standard print and for calligraphy. A few feathers are finished with a standard ballpoint pen. To compliment her feather pens, Dana offers accessories such as ink, stands, trays and vintage inkwells and bottles to name but a few of the treasures. For a breath of long ago, take history in your hand and visit Feather Pen Works.
