Pelikan Place De La Concorde Special Edition R620 Rollerball Pen
By the river Seine in the 8th arrondissement of the French capital is Place de la Concorde, the last and largest of the Parisian royal squares.
Built from 1755 and originally named “Place Louis XV” it created a worthy setting for the imposing equestrian statue of this monarch. In classical style, and following the shape of an octagon, the square separates the magnificent gardens of Tuileries from the start of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.
As the citizens of Paris moved to bring about the abolition of the monarchy and the introduction of first French Republic, the square was renamed “Place de la Révolution” in 1792. One year later a guillotine was erected where King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette were beheaded. After the July revolution of 1830 the city of love entered a period of somewhat more peaceful times – and the square of harmony became known as the impressively sounding “Place de la Concorde”.
Eelaborately crafted blue-grey ring striped noble resin materials, set in sterling-plated trim bestow each writing instrument with a special kind of appeal that is inimitable, fascinating and stratified like the square whose name it bears.
The plunger fountain pen has an 18 kt gold nib with rhodinated decor – masterly shaped, polished and meticulously inscribed by hand. The ballpoint pen is equipped with a twist mechanism and an international large capacity refill. The exclusive roller pen with its gentle and comfortable gliding motion creates ink writing appeal.
