Graf von Faber-Castell has come up with “Limited Edition Heritage” fountain pens inspired by the rooms and marriage of Baroness Ottilie von Faber and Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, the descendants of Baron Lothar von Faber who turned the humble pencil into the world‘s first brand-name writing implement. The 18-karat, bicolor gold nib has been inscribed by hand, and the precisely engraved and elaborately lacquered metal barrel is paired with sterling silver grip, end cap and cap adorned by the Faber-Castell hallmark, a display of filigree craftsmanship. The exquisitely refined pens are limited to 1,898 pieces for each violet and green series, representing the year of Ottilie’s and Alexander’s wedding.
