Visconti Christian Bible Vermeil Limited Edition Fountain Pen 15652
An extraordinary limited edition dedicated to the Christian faith, that combines the artisanal scrimshaw technique and vermeil silver on an oversize writing instrument.
Visconti's Christian Bible writing instruments were introduced in 2009 in a limited edition of 999 numbered fountain pens and 199 rollerball pens in sterling silver, as well as 99 premium numbered fountain pens in 18kt solid gold.
The Vermeil Silver edition is developed on an ivory white resin, and features in highly detailed scrimshaw scenes from the new and the old testament that are central to the Christian faith. The scenery develops both on the cap and the barrel of the writing instruments, and is highlighted in vibrant colors.
The edges of the pen feature a specially developed 10-sided crown in sterling silver that is reminiscent of the 10 commandments, with the back-end being particularly interesting on each of the 10 sides it bear the engraving of a command.
The fountain pen comes with an 18kt gold nib, and uses Visconti's power filler. The power filler's button is hidden under a blind cap on the backside, and to add to the meticulously detailed pen, it is in the shape of the Holy Grail.
The Visconti Christian Bible Vermeil Limited Edition Fountain Pen comes in a luxurious leather gift box in the shape of a vintage book.
