The new limited edition Visconti Brunelleschi fountain with only 388 pieces worldwide. Visconti wanted to use a material that represented Florence so they chose the Cotto Fiorentino Terracotta, used in artifacts and buildings since about 5000 BC. The pen is named after the Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi, who designed and engineered the dome of the Florentine Cathedral using Cotto Fiorentino Terracotta.
The Limited Edition Visconti Brunelleschi Fountain Pen has been crafted from a terracotta resin compound for a beautiful dark brick color. The pen is then finished with rose gold vermeil trim on the clip, ring and medallion. Burin-engraved into the ring is a Florence Cathedral theme design keeping with the theme. The body and cap on the pen both have an eight-sided shape reflecting the same shape of the cathedral. The actual cathedral dome measures 45 meters and so the pen was created to weigh roughly 45 grams. Also based on Leonardo da Vinci’s Divine Proportion, the cap is 0.618 the size of the barrel giving the pen a well balanced feel.
Each Limited Edition Visconti Brunelleschi Fountain Pen comes fitted with a two tone Visconti 23kt palladium Dreamtouch nib available in extra fine, fine, medium, broad, double-broad, or stub sizes. The pen fills with the Visconti High Vacuum Power Filler and has the Hood Safe Lock on the cap. The cap twists 20 degrees and can easily be removed with one hand, but locks in place making it almost impossible to remove on accident. The pen comes in a large gift box with a bottle of Visconti fountain pen ink, a Visconti travelling inkwell in the terracotta color, an eye dropper and a terracotta tile.
This limited edition pen will be available for sale starting the first week of February, 2017 and since there are very few pens available we anticipate they will not last long. Make sure you order your Visconti Brunelleschi Fountain Pen today!
