PATRON OF ART LIMITED EDITION 4810
Fine (F) Nib
Ref. 28631 F
Tsarina Catherine’s ambition was to continue the work of Peter the Great. Indeed, her commitment to the arts was impressive: she corresponded with Voltaire, Diderot and d’Alembert, among others. She is responsible for having the Hermitage – the famous winter palace – erected in St. Petersburg, and it is thanks to her love of painting that the royal art collection grew from a few dozen paintings to more than 4,000. The splendidly ornamented Patron of Art Edition Catherine the Great commemorates the great era of the Russian Empire. Rose gold-coated ornamentation featuring blossom wreath motifs adorns the eggplant-colored barrel of Edition 4810. The nib is in Au 750 solid gold, on which the symbol of the Russian monarchy – the two-headed eagle – is engraved.
It comes with all original boxes, papers and original packaging, namely: outer box, display box, international service certificate, white cardboard sleeve (still with factory plastic wrap around) and the original small label showing the matching limitation number #3039.
