It is easy to forget the pleasure of the quickly disappearing art of writing. Away from the distractions of technology, and more capable of infusing your personality and character into your work than
the modern alternative, hand writing anything is epically more satisfying. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite pieces that I hope will inspire you to once again return to the pen. Of course, we must start with this stunning triumph of precision and unbridled elegance, a Burma ruby and diamond encrusted fountain pen. More than 150.00 carats of invisibly set Burma rubies and 15.00 carats of diamonds embellish this one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Putting ink to paper from this piece is to deposit a perfect line from a nib and body crafted of platinum and 18K gold.
If there is one piece certain to invite you to sit down and write a while, it is this absolutely stunning French Restoration-era roll-top desk. The finest ormolu fixtures swathe rich Cuban mahogany in this matching pair of desk and swivel chair; these exquisite details elevate this piece from merely functional to a work of art. Just as with the ormolu adornments, every aspect of the desk itself is crafted with the utmost care. In fact, the interior drawers and compartments are crafted of quarter-sawn oak, which is harvested from the inner most sections of the oak log. This intensive and costly process produces sections of wood that resist warping and help ensure that this desk will maintain its beauty for generations to come. The desk is appointed with a fitted interior of compartments, lockable drawers and a retractable red leather lined writing surface. For added security, the lower right compartment contains a hidden, lockable coffer to store precious valuables.
