Sheaffer Stars of Egypt

5,000 years in the Making

A Culture of Fine Writing

Ancient Egypt (ca. 3000 B.C. – 30 B.C.) was one of the grandest and most enduring civilizations ever to inhabit the earth. Massive temples, soaring pyramids, star clocks and calendars are just some of the marvelous creations of the Ancient Egyptians. Ancient Egypt is also credited with introducing the earliest known writing system – hieroglyphic writing. Dating back to late in the fourth millennium B.C., hieroglyphic writing employed pictorial symbols to communicate ideas. Used in virtually the same format for nearly 3000 years, administrative documents, songs, religious texts and grave inscriptions were all recorded using hieroglyphic writing.

Over time, hieroglyphic writing evolved into “hieratic” script – a cursive script that allowed for faster writing on smooth surfaces like papyrus - a woven mat of reeds pounded together into a hard, thin sheet. Hieratic script evolved over time to a more simplified version – demotic script – which was used along with hieroglyphics for inscriptions on The Rosetta Stone, a black granite slab dating back to 196 B.C. The writing on the Rosetta Stone was the key that allowed the world to uncover the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.

A multifaceted civilization revered
In addition to being inventors and craftsmen, Ancient Egyptians were guided by a profound interest in the heavens. In fact, the Ancient Egyptians are recognized as being among the very first astronomers. Using the stars as a guide, the Egyptians accurately aligned their pyramids and temples to the four cardinal points, developed a 365 day calendar, and divided the day into 24 hours. Different constellations and stars were associated with their gods and goddesses. Osiris was one of the most important deities in Ancient Egypt, associated primarily with fertility, death, and resurrection. Isis was arguably the most important goddess in Egyptian religion, standing for motherhood and fertility, healing the sick, and working magical spells and charms.

Unique Engraving with Stunning Brilliant Cut Diamond
The Sterling Silver Fountain Pen has a sterling silver finish with a palladium-plated clip. It was intricately engraved in Italy, with the barrel depicting classic elements of Egyptian culture such as Osiris, the Pyramids, and the Eye of Horus. These details are set off by highly polished accents, and the exclusive Sheaffer's inlaid nib in palladium-plated 18K gold. Atop the clip is the signature Sheaffer White Dot, here representing Sirius, the brightest star in the sky.


Individually Numbered Inside a Beautiful Wood Gift Box
Each pen in the edition is individually numbered and is packaged in a beautiful, glossy wood gift box. Also packaged inside the gift box is a custom, hand-made blue glass inkwell, a polishing cloth, and blue and black ink cartridges.

About Sheaffer
The year: 1912. The place: Fort Madison, Iowa. Walter A. Sheaffer takes his grand idea of a pen-filling apparatus that utilizes a lever system and, with his life savings, founds the W.A. Sheaffer company. The physical space of the company is a modest one -- the backroom of Mr. Sheaffer's jewelry store -- but the vision of the company is much more than modest. Nearly a century later, Sheaffer continues to offer generation after generation innovative, reliable and stylish writing instruments. These pens are used worldwide by loyal and diverse friends who appreciate elegance and class.

What's in the Box
