Draco Et Phoenix - Tibaldi Draco Et Phoenix Set
With the Tibaldi Draco Et Phoenix, Tibaldi introduces a precious pen set, celebrating the most powerful and auspicious mythological creatures according to Chinese tradition. The fountain pen is hand painted with a mighty portrait of the Draco on the barrel, whilst the body of the rollerball boasts an elegant image of the Phoenix.
The Draco fountain pen is fashioned from black resin while the Phoenix rollerball is made of ivory resin. The ivory and black stress free acrylic is carefully carved by master craftsmen from a single bar of raw material, guaranteeing durability.
A diamond patterned finish is found on the pen’s trimmings in sterling silver with rose gold plating. This pattern is known as Clou de Paris. The Clou de Paris, consisting of repeating pyramid patterns, is an ancient decorative design, existing since the 16th century. In the 18th century, it was introduced into the watch industry as an elegant way to hide scratches and extend the life of metal surfaces. Each face of the pyramid is processed on two axes, resulting in a design with a high visual impact resembling a diamond shape and similarly reflecting the light. The work is extremely difficult and requires high-precision technology and instruments. The name most likely comes from the basalt stones used to pave Parisian cobblestone streets.
Each Tibaldi Draco Et Phoenix pen is a precious limited edition writing instrument. Only 99 sets consisting of a Draco fountain pen and a Phoenix rollerball are available.
Like the original Tibaldi nibs from the early 1900s, each 18K solid gold Tibaldi nib is engraved with the guarantee of first class writing instruments – 1ª Qualità. Platinum is only applied outside the contours of the eagle and inside the words, requiring the skill of an experienced goldsmith. The thickness of gold varies across the nib to maximize flexibility and comfort when writing. A choice of wider nib grades match every writing preference – Fine, Medium, Broad, Double Broad, Oblique Medium and Oblique Broad.
