VISCONTI: Taj Mahal Set of 3 Limited Edition Fountain Pens
These breathtaking pens pay tribute to the beauty and purity of the Taj Mahal. As timeless and transcendent as the architectural marvel from which they take inspiration, they are not only fine writing instruments, but works of art in their own right.
The beautiful set comprises a pen in ancient ivory and gold filigree (limited to 88 pieces); a pen in burgundy natural resin and rose gold vermeil filigree (limited to 388 pieces); and a pen in black natural resin and sterling silver filigree (limited to 888 pieces). The filigree for these pens was painstakingly handcrafted by artisans utilizing traditional Indian techniques. The grace and beauty of the designs recall the inlaid patterns of the Taj Mahal, and captures the same spirit of perfection and purity. Originally retailed at over $20,000 and long sought by collectors, the consignor has agreed to offer these exceptional pens with a low reserve.
Fine, medium & broad 18K gold nibs. Outer boxes, beautifully carved poplar-wood display boxes, papers. Burgundy pen has been inked. Spotting to some boxes. Limited Editions: each numbered 18 within their respective limitations.
