All Details

Just as extraordinary as this Prussian king is the Patron of Art Edition Friedrich II the Great made in his honour. The gold-plated barrel of Edition 4810 is decorated by two rings embellished with a pattern of curves. These, like the elegant clip, are also gold plated.

Edition 888 is decorated with rings of 950 platinum, and its barrel and cap are made of 750 white gold. A feature shared by the two editions is the 18-karat gold nib, which carries an engraving of the royal monogram of “Fredericus Rex”. An ingenious mechanism enables the pen to be screwed back into the barrel to protect it.

About

Frederick the Great was anything but an ordinary king. He is a celebrated historical figure, not only because he saw himself as the “first servant of the people”, and because of his Prussian discipline, but also because under his rule art and culture underwent a revival.

Sanssouci Palace became a centre of attraction for intellectuals, artists and writers from all over Europe. Frederick himself wrote numerous philosophical works with his friend Voltaire, including the famous “Antimachiavelli”.
