Catherine the Great wanted Roman inspired baths - and a structure from Charles Cameron that was absolutely breathtaking.
Three large, red-brown jasper stones are embedded into the platinum-plated barrel of the plunger-type fountain pen and envision the aura of these magnificent rooms perfectly. Numerous polishings give these vibrantly grained gemstones an inimitable radiance.
The barrel is also engraved with a chain pattern that echoes a formative style element of the Agate Rooms. The cap of the fountain pen is adorned with grey, shimmering, Russian quartz with a facet finish.
Paying homage to the Agate Rooms, the Catherine Palace Pen of the Year brings the lustre and aesthetics of a major era alive in such a fascinating manner. Both editions come with an 18-carat, bicolour gold nib that is run in by hand. An end-cap protects the rotary knob of the plunger mechanism of the plunger-type fountain pen.
