Inspired by the art & architecture of historic downtown Chicago, where our Chicago retail store is located, we have teamed up with Retro 51's design gurus to create a fun and gorgeous pen - Palmer! The pen is an acid-etched peacock design on a brushed antiqued gold barrel, with dark antiqued trim, modeled after the Tiffany Peacock Doors located at the Palmer House Hilton. The pen is packaged in a black tube with matching graphics.
Please note: There is a limit of one per person. Duplicate orders will be cancelled.
The rollerball uses the awesome smooth-gliding Retro 51 refill for a truly wonderful writing experience.
This is one of my favorite etched metal Retro 51 pens! Love the design and the way you unveiled the pen last year!

I got this pen a day or so ago. I was baffled at how beautiful it was. I just can’t get over the smoothness that it writes with. Get one while you can!!

Retro 51 Palmer
I knew this pen would be attractive, and I knew this pen would write well, but I did not know how good it feels to pick up and write with it. The graphic is carved into the bronze body of the pen, giving it a little texture. It just feels good to pick it up, twist it open, and write with it. It was a pleasant surprise.

A fitting tribute to both
The beautiful pen is a fitting tribute to the Palmer House and Retro 51, both sadly departing from us. Thank you, Anderson Pens and Retro 51 for creating this wonderful and wonderfully functional work of art.

Elegant and WOW!
Not an ugly pen! This is my first Retro 51 ballpoint, and the etching is so beautiful. It has a very nice weight in the hand and writes like a dream. Love at first sight - classy, elegant, and an enduring nod to history.

For Chicago Architecture Lovers
I agree with this comment:
This edition pays homage to the beautiful CD Peacock doors in the Palmer House Hotel. Any fan of Chicago architecture would immediately be drawn to this pen, as I was
