Pineider Avatar Fountain Pen
In 1774, Francesco Pineider opened his first shop in the heart of Florence, in the magnificent Piazza della Signoria, opposite Michelangelo’s David. For 243 years, Pineider has been applying traditional Italian methods to the production of its world-renowned, hand-dyed watermarked paper, leather goods, custom stationery and desk sets. Now Pineider introduces two new collections of writing instruments designed by the great Italian pen designer, Dante del Vecchio. The Avatar pens, which have a clean, streamlined look and timeless modern shape, are individually hand-turned from solid bars of marbled Italian resins in Saffron Yellow, Coal Grey, Lipstick Red and Pacific Blue. The large dome cap is anchored by a slender, curved clip sculpted in the shape of a quill. The cap fastens to the barrel with a magnetic closure. The polished metal cap band is etched with the Florentine skyline. The Avatar fountain pen has a beautiful stainless steel nib engraved with a fleur-de-lis, the crest of Florence. The capped rollerball and slim ball pen are made for writing pleasure.
