Graf von Faber-Castell - Pen of the Year 2008

Graf von Faber-Castell - Pen of the Year 2008

Luxury pens, pencils, leather goods, and office supplies. Here is an excerpt about this stunning pen, from the official website: "Once again, the Pen of the Year focuses on the core feature of the Graf von Faber-Castell Collection: wood in its noblest and most inspiring variations. The idea behind this year’s pen comes from Countess Ottilie’s private salon or drawing-room in the Faber-Castell castle, now over 100 years old, that is panelled in costly East Indies satinwood – also known as lemonwood on account of its fragrant scent. And so the name “Lemon Room” came about. No fewer than 84 Satinwood rectangles are individually hand-made for the filigree herringbone pattern of the Pen of the Year 2008. The numbered edition is crowned by a chessboard-facted citrine gemstone, platinized fittings and an 18-carat bicolour gold nib, carefully run in by hand."
