Visconti Limited Edition Backgammon Fountain Pen
Visconti is delighted to announce the launch of the new Limited Edition Backgammon, a pen collection paying homage to one of the world’s oldest board games.
Visconti perfectly captures the mood and symbolism of this ancient game and also presents a pen full of Italian creativity, outstanding craftsmanship and artisanal design for all pen collectors to appreciate and admire. The collection is limited to just 128 pieces and each pen is accompanied by a unique Backgammon game set, with customized checkers and dice.
Visconti pays tribute to this ancient game with a pen featuring subtle details and precise artistry. The body and cap of the pen feature a series of 'points' made in sterling silver and then enameled in vibrant red and jet black, a slow and detailed process. The points mimic the 'points' of a traditional backgammon game board and are accented by sterling silver trim with palladium plating. The pen is available in two different versions, each limited to 128 pieces, each with a different blind cap: One features the "pips" or "dots" of the dice in red and black enamel. The other version features a completely customized "doubling dice" for the true backgammon enthusiast. The Visconti Backgammon collection is available as a rollerball or fountain pen, both pens secure with a threaded cap. The fountain pen features Visconti's patented Double-Reservoir, Power-Filler System and is further enhanced with Visconti's in-house 18kt white gold nib. Each Visconti Backgammon pen is presented in a large collectors box containing a hand-made, collectable game set made entirely of Italian palmellato leather, including customized dice and counters.
