DANTE ALIGHIERI FOUNTAIN PEN
The Dante Alighieri fountain pen features an 18kt gold nib and is embellished with engravings made with the meticulous scrimshaw technique.
The entire body of the pen represents different scenes from the Divine Comedy. Starting from the bottom, hell is depicted with a quotation from Canto V and an illustration freely inspired by a Gustave Doré painting. The protagonists are Paolo and Francesca and their love for one another. In the centre, a typical representation of purgatory, made with a silver microfusion, shows the fortunate damned spiralling up to heaven. The cap is entirely dedicated to Paradise, with a quotation from the XXI Canto and an illustration of Beatrice and Dante, also inspired by a Doré table.
The bespoke box, with its brass structure formed by two statues, an angel and a demon holding the pen, is a true display piece. The mahogany base contains a glass ink bottle and a booklet dedicated to the collection.
