Ref: 7869 – Year 2002 – Limited Edition 2002
In Europe as long ago as the Middle Ages, China was spoken of with reverence as a civilisation rich in artistic and cultural tradition. Stories were told of the finest porcelain, wafer-thin paper, precious silk and legendary stone that was worked by expert hands into an exotic material, jade. During the Qing Dynasty, Chinese master craftsmen used this fascinating material to create unique sculptures and everyday objects that helped shape a whole epoch.
The special Theme Edition Qing Dynasty LE2002 pays tribute to this great era of Chinese culture. An outstanding feature of the pen is the cap, which is made of pure jade and surrounded by a lovingly hand-engraved dragon with five claws – the Chinese symbol of happiness, strenght and long life. The 750 18K gold nib, which is decorated with a dragon, is the finishing touch to this exclusive pen, a winning combination of European craftmanship and Chinese artistic creation. It comes wit all original boxes and papers. Scarce and precious reference from Asia Series.
