 Product Description

The Graf Von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2014 Gold Fountain Pen. After its painstaking restoration, the Agate Pavilion, part of the world-famous Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg, is finally revealed in all of its splendor and multifaceted beauty. Its architecture and materials were the inspiration for the new limited edition "Pen of the Year".

The magnificent building in the style of a Roman bathhouse was built by Scottish architect Charles Cameron with the order of Empress Catherine the Great and completed in 1785. The Agate masterly decorated Rooms with precious stones, is housed on the upper floor. These state apartments are covered with dark-red jasper which can only be found in Russia. White flecks, also known as "blood agate" and hence the entire building complex is called the "Agate Rooms". Under the direction of master craftsman Boris Igdalov, the workshop of Zarskoje Selo/Puschkin was able to complete the feat of restoring the Agate Pavilions in September 2013.

Igdalov was personally involved in the creation of this year's Pen of the Year. With red-brown, lustrous jasper, the filigree details is cut in the finest plates and meticulously in order to impart the color. On the other hand, multiple polishing reveals the desired light nuances and its noble surface gloss.Limited to 150 pens, it is highlighted by small black plates with an inset gold rosette with six beautifully marked jasper stones. The cap as well as the end-cap are adorned with two sunshine yellow, Russian quartz stones with a twinkling facet finish. This extremely luxurious combination perfectly captures the magnificence of the pavilion of Empress Catherine the Great.

The individually-numbered fountain pens are kept in an exclusive, deep-black wooden case that can be used as a collector's case since it has space for six additional pens. It includes a certificate personally signed by Boris Igdalov attesting to the authenticity of the Russian gemstones.
