DETAILS

The art of writing The quill and inkpot gave rise to the first manuscripts in Western civilization. Calligraphy – or in other words, the art of writing beautifully – was developed as a consequence of this wonderful invention. The unique softness of goose quills made it possible to write fluidly and voluptuously; however, they had one major drawback: they required continual sharpening and dipping in the ink. It was only in 1830 that the first steel nibs were produced for mass consumption – in Birmingham, England – and the era of the nib and inkpot began.

Authentic Venetian glass artwork.

GLASS PASTE CAMEO

The first findings of glass paste seem to date back to the fourth millennium BC and are almost completely devoid of the characteristic that will make the fortune of this material: transparency. The glass of the ancients in fact was called ‘showcase’, a substance composed of the same basic elements, but with an opaque appearance, almost always coloured. The applications of glass paste that decorate our products, are produced in our laboratory, and take pictures of ancient neoclassical cameos.

MAHOGANY BLOTTER

The bronze handle of the blotter can be unscrewed to allow the blotting paper to be replaced.
