Arguably one of the world's most beautiful buildings, The Catherine Palace is located near St Petersburg. The Pen of the year 2014 draws its inspiration from the majestic Agate Rooms, when Jasper was referred to as agate. These rooms were the absolute favourite of Catherine the Great, and it was she who ultimately ordered their build under the artistic guidance of a Scottish architect named Charles Cameron in the 1780s'.
Faber-Castell has produced two versions of the Pen of the Year for 2014, The glorious Platinized version which has been produced in 1000 examples only, and the exquisite and very rare limited edition 24 carat gold plated version, which has become a highly select collectors pen, where only 150 of the most fortunate pen aficionados are allowed to own one of these superb pieces of craftsmanship.
