    Giardino dell'Eden The pen for the 20th Anniversary of e-commerce, for Giardino Italiano


    Limited Edition
    100 black pieces
    100 blue pieces

    1996 - 2016. Giardino Italiano has been selling pens online for 20 years.

    For celebrating this important anniversary (we have been the first in the world to sell fountain pens online in 1996), Visconti produced this small masterpiece, exclusively for us: the Giardino dell’Eden pen.

    100 pieces (in total among fountain pens and rollerballs) in black resin, slightly enlighted by pearly grey-cloud shades, and 100 pieces in a special petrol blue (sold out), bright and almost sparkling.

    Cap and barrel of the pens are decorated with the precious Scrimshaw technique.

    Scrimshaw is an engraving technique
    consisting of cutting resin with a very sharp tool
    thus creating a decorative pattern.
    The images are then filled in with printing ink,
    in this case a silver colour,
    and left to dry dry for at least three days.
    At the end of the process,
    the surface is finely smoothed
    until the design appears.
    In ancient times, scrimshaw was used to decorate
    ivory handles, such as on walking sticks,
    collection knife handles and rifle stocks.

    At this moment, Visconti is the only company in the world
    to use this technique for its production.

    The silver pattern that decorates the pen is inspired to Klimt's style in his Tree of life.

    It represents a tree - an apple tree, of course - that winds around the pen's barrel and reaches out to the cap, with a motif of tangled branches that grow with curls, spirals, leavees and apples; like a precious embroidery that lighten the pen's sobriety.

    The palladiun central band is engraved with the Giardino Italiano's logo, the anniversary's dates (1996-2016) and the endings of the curls that compose the main decoration.
