This fountain pen is inspired by the countess Ottilie von Faber Castell. The elegance of this piece is expressed by its colours and patterns, which are immortalised on the violet barrel. This stunning piece also combines the finest materials. The metal parts are made of solid silver, and the hand-engraved nib is of 18 carat bicolour gold. The characteristic double knurling embellish the front end of the flutter cap. The initials of Ottilie, Alexander and the shared family name Faber-Castell (A, O, F and C) are engraved on the end of the cap in fine filigree work requiring extreme precision. It contains a decorative ring on the cap that presents the inscription “Handmade in Germany”. Finally, the name of the collection, “Limited Edition Heritage”, is engraved on the end piece along with the number of copies produced: 1898. This number is chosen in representation of the year in which Ottilie and Alexander married. Each fountain pen is supplied with an exclusive case.
