This fountain pen was born as a result of collaboration of the finest Italian pen artisans and jewelers. The fountain pen is hand-turned out of solid oak barriques where famous Italian wine was kept. The solid silver 925 fitting parts are designed to repeat the barrique hoops. The middle ring is decorated with vine and Latin motto Nulla die sine linea ("Not a day without a line drawn") - all these details help us to create an elegant writing instrument of high value and full of artistic meaning. This is a perfect pen for Italy lovers and wine lovers, and - Italian wine lovers!
"Nulla dies sine linea" (No day [should go by] without [reading / writing at least] a line) .The saying attributed to Apelles, a renowned painter of ancient Greece, refers to the painter's diligence at practising his art every day: Nulla dies sine linea - "Not a day without a line drawn." Apelles was also reportedlyasked why he touched and retouched his paintings so continually, trying to achieve perfection (at least in his own mind); to which he replied, "I paint for eternity."
You are assured to buy a truly precious writing instrument as the manufacturing company belongs to the Italian silversmith guild and complies with both Italian and European laws. This compliance is verified by a mark on each writing instrument - a rhombus shaped stamp with *AO 28, and oval stamp 925 which ensure that the pen is made of solid 925 silver.
