NEW GRAF VON FABER CASTELL 2012 PEN OF THE YEAR GOLD FOUNTAIN PEN MED NIB FC145090

FOR SALE IS ONE FOUNTAIN PEN

LIMITED TO 1500 PIECES.

COMES BOX AND PAPERS.

The combination of gold leaf and ancient German wetland oak makes the Pen of the Year 2012 an extraordinarily luxurious fountain pen – its cap crowned with a chessboard-faceted citrine gemstone.

This fine pen features an 18k bi-color gold nib – available in MEDIUM. All metal fittings are 24k gold-plated.

Only 1,500 will be created, making this the most limited edition of Faber-Castell’s Pen of the Year series.

Scarcely any other wood expresses such an enigmatic beauty as ancient wetland oak wood. It takes a long, long time for an oak tree to turn into such a sought-after and precious wood. Its deep, often gnarled textures make wetland oak look like driftwood found on the shore. But in fact, these extraordinary pieces of wood have been buried for as many as 8,000 years in German bogs and marshes. The discovery of each find is a matter of chance and each piece seems to have a mysterious story to tell.

The Golden Fleece, the Nibelung Hoard, El Dorado – no metal has fascinated mankind across centuries and continents as much as gold has: people have decorated themselves with it and fought over it. Its very name is synonymous with value and sovereignty and it expresses both power and love. At the beginning of the modern age, it was one of the key driving forces behind the great voyages of discovery as people searched for El Dorado, the legendary land of gold.

A fascinating encounter: the deep structure of ancient wetland oak, whose beauty has been naturally wrought over thousands of years, together with gold, that lends a supernatural sheen to the most beautiful works of art created by mankind. A sensitive and masterly touch is demanded if gold leaf is to mould perfectly to the graining of the oak barrel of the pen. The gold leaves are carefully applied by hand using a fine squirrel-hair brush - a 4,000 year-old technique that dates back to the Egyptians and is mastered by only a select few people today. Such an extraordinary craft demands particular artistry and skill.

After studying old Venetian gilding techniques and winning the Bavarian State Design Award, the gilder and church painter Ernst D. Feldmann has achieved the almost impossible: layer upon layer of 24k gold leaf applied to the oak pen barrel in an intricate and detailed process. Embedded in resin, this reveals a unique pattern of reflections that only the purest gold can display.

Each individually numbered Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2012 comes in an exclusive deep black wooden case. A certificate, signed personally by Ernst D. Feldmann, attests to the 24k gold leaf gilding on the 1,700 year old German oak wood, as well as to the limited edition to 1,500 fountain pens. The high-gloss collector’s case with glass lid and two removable trays made of linden wood provides a masterly setting for any collector’s favorite pens.
