  1. Graf Von Faber Castell Alexander Fountain Pen

    Graf Von Faber Castell Alexander Fountain Pen

    Color:

    Green

    $1,695.00

    Baroness Ottilie von Faber and Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen get married in 1898. Due to a testamentary clause in her grandfather Lothar von Faber’s will, the company should keep the “Faber” name for all time. The marriage thus creates the new noble family of “von Faber-Castell”. The history of this couple is the inspiration for our Ottilie and Alexander “Limited Edition Heritage” series. Managing a large company – and at such a young age – is more than unusual for a woman in those days. The marriage requires Alexander to take on new responsibilities, too. As an aristocrat and a cavalry captain of the 6th Chevau-léger Regiment, he is not prepared for working as a merchant. Nevertheless, he quickly proves his ability to manage the global business in Stein. In 1905, the launch of the Castell 9000 in his regiment’s colour green is a great success. The pencil is characterised by a new standard of quality and value which is still valid today – a true classic and the inspiration for the refined guilloché metal barrel of the fountain pen “Limited Edition Alexander”, which is lacquered in the same green. The study and chairs with the delicately patterned, violet fabric in classic Art Nouveau perfectly stage Ottilie's favourite colour. This play of colour and pattern is subtly reflected on the work-intensive, finely laser finished and lacquered, dark violet barrel of the “Limited Edition Ottilie” fountain pen. The barrels of this Edition get their subtle shine and particular depth due to the multiple layers of lacquer and polishing all done by hand. The polishing alone of an angled barrel places the highest demands on the craftsmanship in order to maintain the shape so exactly. All metal parts are made of solid silver. The grip, end cap and cap are adorned by the hallmark. The front end of the elegantly fluted cap is decorated by the double knurling characteristic of our Sterling silver writing instruments as well as by an engraving of the initials of the couple – a display of filigree craftsmanship. The words “Handmade in Germany” are engraved in the decorative ring. Each 18 carat, bicolour gold nib is run in by hand. The end cap features an engraving of the collection’s name “Limited Edition Heritage” and the limitation “1898”, which represents the year of Ottilie’s and Alexander’s wedding. Learn More
