Visconti Dragon 2012 Gold Rollerball Pen Red resin - 38 pieces worldwide

Writing has been evolving for thousands of years while the fountain pen, on the other hand, is a fairly recent invention, being just over a hundred years old.

The fountain pen was undoubtedly invented as a writing tool in an age when, despite handwriting being such a critical skill, not many kinds of writing implements were available. Basically, you had the choice between a goose feather quill or a nib, and an inkwell!

The fountain pen, with its built-in ink reservoir, was a truly revolutionary development.

The first models were barely out, than jewellers began devoting their skill and energy to turning these daily “tools” into masterpieces of their art.

Floral and animal decorations were all the rage at the height of the Art Nouveau era, and a vast number of otherwise run-of-the-mill pens became “Spider’s Webs”, “Snakes” and “Dragons”, with filigree work to embellish their otherwise drab drums, which were virtually all made of black ebonite because… celluloid was still only in its infancy!

After Istos Aracnis, Visconti continues to interpret jewellery pens with the Dragon, in honour of the year of the dragon (2012), 2012, using a Chinese dragon in gold and lacquered in a multitude of colours, as only skilled Florentine craftsmen know how. Visconti has chosen red natural resin, and the beauty of the pen speaks out better than any description.

The cobweb is fretworked in Gold and lacquered in red and white, displaying all the meticulous craftsmanship of our master goldsmiths. In technological terms, the fine fretwork and lacquering are on a par with the heart of the pen: a magnificent twin-reservoir system patented by Visconti at the end of the last century.
