Plotter's Quill Pen
Guy Fawkes was infamously arrested for plotting to blow up Parliament, an act of treason that is remembered every year on the 5th November. Our Plotters Quill pen represents the same one used by Fawkes to sign his confession after being imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1605.

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot!
The Gunpowder Plot, an attempt in 1605 to kill King James and blow up the Houses of Parliament, is one of the most infamous events in British history. It is remembered every 5th of November with bonfires and fireworks across the country.
Guy Fawkes, the best known of the plotters, stood trial in Westminster Hall and was executed in Old Palace Yard in 1606. The Houses of Parliament are still searched by the Yeomen of the Guard just before every State Opening to ensure no latter-day Fawkes is concealed in the cellars.
