Metropolitan Museum Imperial Red Fountain Pen

Fabergé was the world’s master of enameling. This is a work-intensive technique, in which enamel is layered in a wave patterns on the engraved metal.  The translucent enamel let light to reflect of the metal, which shimmer as light hits it from different angles.  Combining enameling with gold and stones, Fabergé brought this technique to new heights, making it one of the methods most favored by the élite.

This pen, made of 24K gold layered with lacquer, is based on a picture frame in the Museum’s collection, created by Fabergé’s before 1899. The fountain pen comes with a medium German-made gold-plated steel nib and takes a cartridge or converter.  Both fountain pen and roller ball comes with twist in caps.  The roller ball takes standard refills. In addition, the pen comes in a piano finish wood box.
