Simultaneously sophisticated and whimsical, the Cross Botanica Black Primrose fountain pen features a floral pattern inspired by motifs used in henna art. The metallic design radiates in black and dusty mauve while the pearlescent ivory lacquer background offsets the intricate pattern. This affordable and memorable fountain pen makes an excellent introduction to the Cross brand.


The Cross Botanica Black Primrose is a mid-sized pen with excellent balance in the hand. This is an easily transportable writer for those who want to be able to take their fountain pen on the go.



The undulating motif winds up the cap and down the barrel, interspersed with elegant roses. Small decorative crystals add to the rich finish, while polished chrome trim accentuates the ivory backdrop. 

The Cross Botanica Black Primrose fountain pen can use convenient Cross brand ink cartridges, or can be filled with anybottled fountain pen ink using the converter, included as a complimentary add-on with your purchase from us at Classic Fountain Pens.


The chrome-plated Cross clip allows this pen to be easily affixed to a shirt pocket, and also serves as a built-in roll stopper. Cross's trademark conical top gleams in chrome plating.


Normally made available only with steel nibs, we are able to provide the Botanica Black Primrose with the same 18k solid gold rhodium-plated nibs used by Cross's classic Century II series.
These 18k nibs are good candidates for customizations such as Cursive Italic or Left Oblique, with the some tipping sizes also appropriate for our special Architect's Point customization.



The Cross Botanica Black Primrose fountain pen arrives in an attractive presentation box and includes the complimentary converter and a starter ink cartridge.

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
