Description

Metropolitan Museum Sealing Wax Roller Pen. Some of the most decorative objects ever made saw the light in Paris during the 18th century. Georges A. Croze  became a master goldsmith in 1777 and established a workshop in Paris. He specialized in small luxury objects for an elite clientele, including also members of the French court. His detailed gold and enamel boxes had painted portraits and rich jewel tones.

Metropolitan Museum Sealing Wax Roller Pen

The Museum’s collection includes an étui – a small ornamental box for carrying personal items – bearing Croze’s mark. This superb étui, with translucent blue enamel and a decorative gold scale pattern with gold foliage in relief, served originally to hold sealing wax. Documents sealed with a wax stamp, bearing the writer’s crest or coat-of-arms had big demand at a time when people used to hand-carry the mail. This pen, Made of gold and lacquer, also got inspiration from the original 18th-century etui.

The fountain pen has a medium German made gold plated steel nib. Both fountain pen and roller ball have twist caps.  The ball point twists to open and close. The roller ball and ball pen take standard refills.
