    Product Description

    Metropolitan Museum of Art Medieval Colonnette Rollerball Pen
    By about 1300, the city of Cologne held Germany's largest urban population and one of its most prolific artistic centers. Brilliant enamels from 12th-century Cologne bear witness to the importance of the church in the cultural life of the city.

    A group of medieval enamels in the Museum's collection were once part of the massive shrines that lavishly decorated the interiors of Cologne's churches; some of these fragments resemble small-scale door arches, columns, and capitals. Adorned with intricate champlevé enamel, a colonnette, or miniature column, from this group was made in Cologne about 1175-1200. The Medieval Colonnette rollerball pen has a twist cap.
