Caran d'Ache Chinese Zodiac Year of the Rooster 2017 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 Rooster
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 Rooster”, is issued as part of this exceptional line of writing instruments to celebrate the corresponding Chinese year in 2017.

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.

In the Chinese Zodiac, the rooster symbolizes the sun’s energy, intelligence and the art of appearances. Brave, methodical and precise, the Rooster is successful and aims for excellence. Its profound honesty is an asset in its partnerships and alliances. Its exceptional strength of conviction and sparkling charisma often position it as a leading figure. Considerate and sensitive to the well-being of loved ones, the rooster protects family relationships, pledging peace and harmony.

A spellbinding creation, a subtle blend of art and culture.
Perpetuating the aesthetic tradition of earlier limited editions dedicated to symbols of the Chinese zodiac, the “Year of the Rooster” is a revival of the splendor of veritable Chinese lacquer.

The fiery figure of the rooster appears on the body of the writing instrument with all the magnificence of its rich plumage. Made using intense orange Chinese lacquer, the engraved design enhances the animal’s energy and sunny presence. The glossy black background is patiently applied, layer after layer, according to ancestral tradition. The typically Asian character of the finely engraved design emphasizes the beauty of the rooster with its flamboyant feathers, agile feet with their sharp spurs and an expressive profile crowned with its proud comb. Each writing instrument is authenticated with the calligraphic symbol of the Rooster and the Chinese stamp of the Maison Caran d’Ache, applied in red as a token of good luck.
