Each product undergoes manual processing and is therefore slightly different from others. Each piece we produce is therefore one of a kind.
The pen has a cylindrical shape, with the ends tapering to a section reminiscent of Greek columns. The map of Alexander the Great’s empire, created with the scrimshaw technique and subsequently colored, is shown on the barrel and the cap. The metal fittings are in aged bronze and feature typical Greek decorations. On the central ring there is the inscription reading “Alexander the Great” and in the bronze band on the shaft there is a gilded silver plate depicting Alexander’s face. In homage to the Macedonian phalanx, the clip, also in aged bronze, is spear-shaped and displays a gilded silver shield depicting the sun, Alexander the Great’s family crest.
