Metropolitan Museum Of Art 18th Century Parisian Ballpoint Pen
The renowned French goldsmith Georges-Antoine Croze’s design of an 18th century étui inspired the Metropolitan Museum of Art Parisian pen series. The étui was a small ornamental case originally used to hold sealing wax. Letters sealed with a wax stamp bearing the writer’s crest were especially valued at a time when correspondence was hand carried.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art 18th Century Parisian retractable ballpoint pen features a gold-plated brass body with a scale pattern lacquered in blue, red and green. A blue cabochon is festooned on the pen’s crown. Each pen is presented in a gorgeous blue lacquered wood box with a history of the design.
