S.T. DUPONT NY 5TH AVENUE LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION is a collection of lighters, smoking accessories and collectible pens characterized by subtle combinations of dark gray color with metallic gold, founded over 140 years ago S.T. Dupont has a rich history related to royal families and aristocracy. Having a strong relationship with the past and a strong dedication to innovation enabled S.T. Dupont has been one of the best luxury manufacturers for almost a century and a half.
Thanks to the continuous development of the S.T. Dupont officially specializes in the production - lighters, fountain pens and the regular ones, leather accessories - calling the lines: FIRE ART, ART OF WRITING, ART OF TRAVEL, and ART OF SEDUCTION. American aristocrats living on 5th Avenue in New York in the 30's and 40's worked on commission from the most talented French interior decorators. The Dupont brothers, as well as other French artists and architects, were true ambassadors of the French art de vivre. S.T.Dupont's products enjoyed great interest in prestigious Manhattan stores.
Now S.T. Dupont presents a limited edition of the New York 5Th Avenue collection in homage to the New York design architecture of the 1930s and 1940s.
S.T. Dupont demonstrates a real commitment to craftsmanship and quality, transforming high-quality writing collectible pens and lighters into works of art and family souvenirs every day.
Following a sojourn on the Cote d'Azur and a journey across the Atlantic aboard the ships of the French Line, S.T. Dupont is stopping off in New York with its new Limited Edition line, New York 5the Avenue. It pays homage to the legendary city of New York as well as to the great French interior designers who decorated the private apartments and offices of the New York elite on the Upper East Side and 5the Avenue during the Thirties and Forties. Breaking away from Art Deco, the French designers created a sophisticated world, bleeding sixteenth century Hispanic baroque, eighteenth century French classicism and the surrealism of the time.
Once again, S.T. Dupont has pushed the limits of its expertise in lacquer and gold to create a beautifully rich decorative scheme. Tracery in drap and chocolate lacquer, delicately juxtaposed, is enriched by many fine guilloch arabesques. Framing and enhancing this sumptuous decor, bronze grilles finished in gold, molded and chased by hand like a piece of wrought ironwork, are laid one by one on each lighter and pen. The globe they form is a reference to the globe held by the statue of Atlas at the foot of the Rockefeller Center on 5th Avenue.
Approximately 160 hours of work are required to produce a single pen – four times longer than a standard lacquered pen. SIZE OLYMPIO X-LARGE FOUNTAIN PEN = 14.6 cm
