About ML1856


Manuscript Pen Company celebrates it’s long and successful history in pen manufacturing, with a new and exciting range of luxury pens. The ML1856 incorporates more than 150 years of British expertise, forged together in this elegant fountain pen. 


Made in the UK and built on a legacy of producing high quality writing instruments that embody fine craftsmanship & exacting standards, the ML1856 fountain pens are the perfect choice for modern day penmanship. 

The Italian resin sets in a slightly different way each time, meaning each pen barrel is unique. Beautiful laser etched details adorn the nib, which are available in three different widths including; a medium handwriting nib, Italic 1.1mm or Italic 1.5mm nib. Enjoy beautiful smooth writing, obtained by a finely polished nib and after use replace the highly polished clip for a seamless screw closure. 

For something extra special, try Manuscript's Midnight Pen with a beautiful two tone gilt nib and clip. 


In the 19th century, D.Leonardt & Co were appointed as penmakers to the kings of Italy, Spain and Portugal. The rare trademark which incorporates a crown has remained in the family to this day.
