Body and cap are both decorated with different masks where certain characteristic features have been gilded. The details of the African elephant, Emperor of animals and symbol of wisdom and knowledge, have been delicately enhanced. The sculpted tip of the body is composed of 800 solid silver that recalls certain mask decorations, and ends with a nib in rhodium-plated solid gold.
Secret of mystical forces, the tip of the cap is enhanced with a magnificent stone from South Africa. A semi-precious gem cut as a cabochon, the tiger eye is part of the quartz family. Truly a living material, it takes its name from the yellow streak of light on the surface that perfectly suggests the eye of a big cat. Just as African masks possess their own special magic, the tiger eye is a stone with protective powers that enable it to repel negative energy. It is also a strong symbol of courage, positive energy and good fortune.
Under the spell of the secret of the masks, owners of a special edition will be fascinated by the mystery and dazzled by the superb goldsmith work carried out on these pens.
The Tribal African Masks Limited Edition is part of Caran dâ€™Acheâ€™s iconic Artiste Collection. The fountain pen and the roller pen, respectively available in 128 and 64 pieces, form an exceptional tribute to the rituals and spirituality of Africa. The gently rounded body of the mysterious African masks is made in 800 solid silver illuminated with gilded details.
The ring of the pen carries the Caran dâ€™Ache logo as well as the penâ€™s number and the master craftsmanâ€™s mark which guarantee the origin and certification of the pieces. It is also here that the artist, Edouard Jud, has individually signed each of the writing instruments in the collection.
The fountain pen can be used with an ink pump or with cartridges. The rhodium-plated, 18-carat gold nib is available in M width and can be ordered in F or B widths.
Manufactured according to the rigorous Swiss Made quality standards, each pen carries a lifetime guarantee.
