VISCONTI: Alhambra H.R.H. Set of Two 22K Yellow & White Gold with De Deers Diamonds Limited Edition 38 Fountain Pens
Visconti's Alhambra is the most labor-intensive filigree pen ever created, with over 100 individual steps required in its handcrafted production. The filigree does not rest atop the pen's surface; rather, it is set into a recessed tracery in the ebonite during the casting process. This costly and difficult technique has only been used for the Alhambra, making it unique among pens. The extra-limited H.R.H iteration of this design represents one of the true pinnacles of modern penmaking.

18K white and yellow gold filigrees over black ebonite, each set with 120 small De Beers diamonds (2.4k); solid 18K gold ingot pocket clips. Fine 18K two-tone gold nibs. One outer sleeve, two outer boxes, two varnished wood display boxes with brass plaques, booklets. Year of production: 1994. Limited Edition: each 24/38.
