This Retro 1951 officially licensed Smithsonian twist-top rollerball pen pays tribute to Gene Davis's Hot Beat, which is part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's permanent collection. He was quoted saying, “it seemed to feel right, as we entered the sixties, to have colour that leapt right off the wall ... It’s almost as if I wanted to shout, rather than to whisper.”
You'll definitely be writing boldly with this Tornado printed in matching stripes to replicate the original painting. Smithsonian logo on the top disc, serial number engraved on the top ring, and packaged in a matching commemorative tube.
