Fountain pen Guilloche Ciselé Anthracite F
Guilloches – ornamental patterns of fine, engraved lines – originally adorned precious watches and accessories such as the legendary Fabergé eggs. Graf von Faber-Castell uses this traditional jewelling technique to transform the writing instruments in the Guilloche series into true pieces of jewellery: The precious resin barrel is given a filigree pattern line by line and then further refined in manual lacquering and polishing processes. The Guilloche models are available in many expressive colour variations, as well as in a rhodium-plated finish.
The Guilloche writing instruments made of precious resin are distinguished by a special process. Each one is engraved individually using a method otherwise reserved for jewellery or silver accessories. The barrel is then hand-lacquered and repeatedly polished.The result is a unique and most interesting surface texture. No two writing implements are identical: each is an individual example of the craftsman’s art.
