The Patron of Art Edition Lorenzo de Medici pays tribute to an age in which handcrafts and art were inextricably linked with each other. The eight-sided barrel, made of 925 sterling silver and richly ornamented, is hand-engraved and signed by eight master craftsmen (JB Signature). This elaborately finished barrel and the delicately engraved nib with its heart-shaped hole make the edition as much a beautiful piece of jewellery as an exquisite writing instrument. Although the last direct descendant of the Medici house died centuries age, the name of this aristocratic family from Florence is still evocative of a dynast that lasted over generations and which, with its influence on culture and the fine arts, has a permanent place in the history books.
It comes with all original boxes & papers (i.e. black outer box, lacquered wood display box, booklet, International Service certificate, International warranty card, original white outer cardboard sleeve, plastic pouch, black document folder). -> Samall tear to the black outer box: circa 2.7 cm <-
