ST Dupont Velvet Firehead Guilloche Lilac Rollerball Pen
S.T. Dupont’s iconic Firehead guilloche pays tribute to the much celebrated ‘Louvre’ museum in Paris, France, famed for its glass ‘pyramid’ entrance, which serves as the design inspiration.
S.T. Dupont engineers engrave a series of ‘pyramids’ throughout the barrel and cap of each pen using an ‘engine turning’ process that engraves very precise and intricate geometric patterns into an underlying material.
S.T. Dupont's artisans then add layers of natural lacquer to the engraved pen in a month's long process involving many applications and polishing to impart depth and mystery to each finish. The engraved guilloche reflects light through the overlay of natural lacquer, creating a spectacular three dimensional display of color. The result is a collection of precious, hand lacquered writing instruments of exceptional beauty.
