Visconti Limited Edition The Forbidden
QR Code Link to This Post
The Forbidden City in Beijing, China, was the exclusive home of the Chinese imperial family for more than 500 years, and today, the elaborate complex of palaces and gardens is one of the greatest achievements in Chinese architecture and culture. Visconti pays tribute to this legendary place with a unique and fascinating Limited Edition. Rather than a typical metal overlay on resin, the Visconti Forbidden City features resin overlaying a finely engraved metal base. The design creates a grid pattern that recalls the layout of the Forbidden City as seen from above. Inhabiting the cages are tiny sterling vermeil figures of mythical beings prominent in Chinese Culture. Only 88 fountain pens in red and gold. The fountain pen uses Double Reservoir Power Filler and it is done by pulling out the DRAGON HEAD which is made of gold. The Dragon head signifies the Emperor in ancient China.
