Visconti Limited Edition Oceanographic Museum Fountain Pen Fine Nib

For the 100 year anniversary of the Oceanographic Museum and upon the request of the Museum Foundation, of which Prince Albert II of Monaco is the President, Visconti has shaped a brand new fountain pen in limited edition of 100 pieces. This new Visconti creation is made in ivory-colored resin with scrimshaw engravings picturing the majestic building that hosts the museum and some marine views on the shaft, while on the blind cap we can see the famous sperm whale that is presented in the Museum exhibition hall and the nymph that appeared on the medal that was engraved by the Museum's first opening in 1910.

A prestigious briarwood box contains the fountain pen and a precious crystal inkwell.

The famous Oceanographic Museum of Monte Carlo was founded by Prince Albert I, the Oceanography Prince, and had been directed for many years by J.Y.Cousteau. The beautiful neoclassical building, which stands right above the seaside on a 80 m high cliff, opened to the public on March 29th 1910. The Museum is also the seat of scientific laboratories for marine environment studies, while many other rooms are open to visitors. An entire floor is dedicated to the famous aquarium with beautiful reconstructions of marine landscapes and an incredible variety of living fishes and tropical corals. Inside the several halls dedicated to oceanography, we can get in touch with submarine exploration history by admiring a rich variety of research boat models, oceanographic tools and instruments, historical boats, submarines, old sounders, great-depth traps, and various beautiful paintings. The museum is completed by a rich library hosting historical documents together with rare and extremely precious books.
