The butterflies depicted on our colorful pen are adapted from an early nineteenth-century coverlet in the Museum's collection, which was made in China for the American market (probably Canton, ca. 1830). Skillfully embroidered in polychrome silks, the crimson silk coverlet features a field of varied butterflies fluttering around a basket of flowers, deep borders of garden scenes, and fringe on all four sides. East Asian artists through the ages have been inspired by the eye-catching color combinations of butterfly wings to create distinctive compositions.
Ball pen twists to open and close and takes a standard ballpoint refill.
