Visconti QWERTY fountain pen
QWERTY | TECHNIQUES & MATERIALS
The black acrylic base of the barrel and cap are covered by an engraved aged silver structure and subsequently enamelled. The fountain pen version is fitted with our 18kt gold nib finished in ruthenium. All the metalwork is made in silver which is aged with a special treatment. The band is engraved in our workshop and then enamelled, while the clip, equipped with a pressure mechanism, is embellished with an element that recalls a traditional typewriter key. All the internal components of the pen are made using the turning technique. The pen itself is plated with precious aged silver and engraved on three different levels with a special technique which gives the writing instrument a three-dimensional effect. The matching case was conceived as a charming object to put on display. The design is inspired by the first Remington typewriters, where the upper part, complete with hinged opening in aged silver, contains a red and black glass ink bottle. The lower section, where the writing instrument is stored, has a magnetic closure system and a glass window that allows a glimpse of the pen. The lid is embellished with aged silver and ivory enamelled keys that make up the word Qwerty. The case also showcases an aged silver plaque with the Visconti logo, reminiscent of typewriter strikers.
