S.T.DUPONT OLYMPIO MEDICI 2005 LIMITED EDITION 18K GOLD M NIB FOUNTAIN PEN SET
Great collectible pen for an avid Dupont fan!!!
The Italian Renaissance was one of the most important events in the development of Western civilization. It was during the Renaissance that architecture became an art, through spectacular buildings such as the Duomo of Florence. It is this architecture that inspired S.T. Dupont's design of the Medici Limited Edition.
This magnificent creation's design was inspired directly by the exterior decoration of the cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore. The cathedral is a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance and widely known for its famous dome. The harmony and strength of its proportions mark a decisive break with medieval thought.
S.T. Dupont reinterprets the polychrome marblework on the façades of the edifice, where the skillfull interplay of dark green and veined white lacquer creates a marquetry inlay effect. Inlays of beveled red jasper refer to the color of the tile used for the dome, still found throughout Tuscany. The engravings found throughout the pieces are of ultra-sophisticated detail and extreme refinement brought to light by modern digital technology.
This limited edition is named in honor of the Medici family, great patrons of the arts in Florence throughout the 15th century.
