Visconti Amerigo Vespucci Rose Gold Limited Edition Rollerball Pen

Visconti Amerigo Vespucci Rose Gold Limited Edition Rollerball Pen

Visconti “Amerigo Vespucci” Limited Edition

In creating a pen to commemorate this crucial 500th anniversary, Visconti took its inspiration from a few important symbolic events, primarily Vespucci's travels themselves and Waldeseemuller's famous map of 1507.  It would have been impossible to reproduce the entire map on a pen, so we chose the sections depicting Europe and America.   

To reproduce it correctly, we further perfected our scrimshaw technique, introducing points and chiaroscuro into the graphic work. The result is astonishing − indeed almost as astonishing as Vespucci's own travels!  Certain details, such as the caravelle, are almost painterly in the quality of their engraving.  If we stop to consider that a scrimshaw is not on the surface but actually inside the surface, we will realize what an incredible accomplishment this has been on our artists' part.                                                   

Such a special item could not fail to have a special presentation box, so we reproduced the instrument which, in conjunction with the quadrant, allowed Vespucci to complete his voyage:  the astrolabe.
