Extremely animated, Horses thrive when they’re the center of attention. Always in search of a good time, Horses keep the crowds happy with their humor and their wit. The Horse is a symbol of nobility, intelligence and perseverance. It said that people born in the Year of the Horse are smart, fabulous speakers who have a gift for getting through to other people. They believe that their aim in life is "to seek individual freedom and happiness."
S.T.Dupont’s HORSE Limited Edition pays tribute to this inspiring creature with a collection of unique writing instruments, lighters and accessories featuring two exclusive series: The Premium Edition and Prestige Edition.
The HORSE Prestige collection is composed of a pen, lighter and ashtray, each limited to 88 pieces.
Hand sculpted on a Néo-Classique President Rollerball pen, made in black Chinese lacquer, the yellow gold plated Horse with a splendid mane on the top of the pen comes to its full magnitude. The horse’s eyes are set with two diamonds of 0.4 carats.
Both, pen and lighter, sit on a sculpted base in yellow bronze with a burnished hand patina bearing an engraved plate.
