Product Details

The Writers Edition 2013 pays tribute to the French novelist and playwright who contributed an opus of nearly 100 novels and plays to world literature of the 19th century - Honoré de Balzac. Inspired by the Dandyism of the 19th century and the elegance of Balzac, the precious black resin and grey lacquer of the barrel, with its guilloché refinement, references the typical cutaway favoured by refined Parisian gentlemen. While the oversized shape of the pen mirrors Balzacʼs bold stature, the clip embellished with turquoise lacquering on its top symbolises the author’s walking cane. The platinum and gold-coated rings refer to the different classes that emerged in French society in the early 19th century - often a central theme in the works of Balzac. Furthermore Balzacʼs very own initials are finely lasered on the rhodium-coated Au 750 gold nib.
