Visconti Dante’s Divine Comedy $1,299.00 Sold Out

Visconti Dante’s Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy (or Divina Commedia, in Italian) was written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. It may very well be the preeminent work of Italian literature. His poem’s imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church.

This pen was designed as an homage to Dante’s work. The focus of the pen is its body, with a scrimshaw perfectly executed by artists. Scrimshaw is the old art of hand cutting ivory and filling the engraved area with a special ink. The design reminds us of Dante’s descriptive journey into Hell and Purgatory. In contrast, its cap symbolizes Paradise with its angel-shaped clip and delicate ornaments. The vintage (circa 1960’s) celluloid material is no longer available.

The pen is fitted with a fine 18k nib, and is filled via the unique Visconti patented Double Reservoir system, which accommodates up to seven times the amount of ink other pens hold, yet allows the owner to travel with complete peace of mind. The unusually short cap allows the reservoir to be fully visible behind the decorative metal trim even when the pen is capped, so there is no need to unscrew the cap to check the level of ink.

The outer box is leather, designed to remind us of Dante’s bookbound work. It contains the pen, a lithography of the artwork and the manufacturer’s guarantee printed on handmade paper, and a metal bas relief executed expressly for Visconti, representing Dante’s image.

This pen is numbered x of 030 of 388 pieces worldwide.

Note: Unless otherwise requested, we will test and clean every pen before shipping.
