Most reside in private collections. That being said, there are a lot of themed luxury Italian fountain pens on the market. These often represent reproductions of famous works or events.
What makes this pen different is it isn't a recreation. It's an original design. An original work of art.
Design elements in the cap, section and nib take inspiration from Palladio's famous local works including Villa Elmo, Villa Caldogno and the Basilica to create its own unique form. Details in the gold vermeil are exquisite. Geometric patterns in matte and gloss finish brilliantly capture the design of Italian architecture. The vermeil on the cap is impressive, weighing 40 grams. The vermeil cap top, piston filling knob and two-toned solid 18K nib tie the work of art together with geometric patterns that complement the theme.
The section breaks up this structured discipline with sensuous curves. A touch of refined sophistication. Just as you get lost in the pen's artistic elegance, it not so subtly reminds you that this pen is a luxury item in every sense of the word.Adorned on the Italian sconce shaped clip is a multi-faceted diamond. Not ostentatious, but a symbol of the pen's true purpose: To be treasured. The condition of this pen is outstanding. There are no visible scratches or blemishes. Being vermeil, light oxidation does occur, as can be seen in the images.
This comes off with buffing. To avoid rubbing, I suggest having it professionally cleaned every so often as you would with fine jewelry. This pen comes with its original padded box presentation case and all of its papers, including certification card. The box does have one hinge that needs adjusted (stays open just slightly), but no functional issues.
The pen functions just like the day it was hand-crafted. If you are a collector of high-luxury Italian pens or a. Connoisseur of fine art, this limited edition Palladio will make a perfect edition to your collection.It has a low number of 12 out of 72. As a fellow avid collector of modern and vintage fountain pens, I take great care in inspecting and cleaning every pen I sell. Thanks so much for your interest! Number 12/72 (marked on the barrel).
