Caran d'Ache Chinese Zodiac Year of the Monkey 2016 Fountain Pen - 18kt Gold Nib
Limited Edition of 888

As a tribute to the Chinese zodiac, Caran d’Ache is celebrating the Year of the Monkey.
The Maison Caran d’Ache pays tribute to sophisticated arts in the “Chinese Calendar” collection, designed to revive the legend of the Chinese zodiac signs. The most recent creation, the limited edition “Year of the Monkey”, is issued as part of this exceptional line of writing instruments to celebrate the corresponding Chinese year in 2016.

Legend has it that on New Year’s Eve, the powerful Jade Emperor called all the animals to a mysterious gathering while promising them a special offering. Only 12 of them responded to the invitation. According to the order in which they arrived, the Emperor then attributed to each a year that would be dedicated to them and bear their name.

Endowed with a thirst for learning and a vivid imagination, the monkey is one of the most creative signs of the Chinese zodiac. These passionate beings have a creative mind and love a good challenge. Their intelligence and proven cleverness nurture social relationships, thus promising an exceptionally ingenious year.

A spellbinding creation, a subtle blend of art and culture.
Pursuing the aesthetic approach of the preceding limited editions, dedicated to the symbols of the Chinese zodiac, the “Year of the Monkey” resurrects the splendor of authentic Chinese lacquer.

The animated figure of the monkey leaps out in yellow Chinese lacquer on a glossy black background that has been patiently applied layer after layer according to ancestral tradition. The monkey’s shimmering coat, its agile long arms and expressive face are depicted with the utmost delicacy on the body of the pen, presenting a design that is typically Asian in character. Each writing instrument is authenticated with the calligraphic sign of the monkey and the Chinese stamp of the Maison Caran d’Ache, applied in red as a token of good luck.
