A MASTERPIECE FOR HER MAJESTY
Catherine the Great wanted Roman-inspired baths – and she wanted a structure from Charles Cameron in the 1780s that was absolutely breathtaking.

The same was true for the seven particularly luxurious rooms on the top floor of the baths. At the request of the Empress, the walls were adorned with ornately ground and polished jasper from the Urals. At the time, jasper was called agate, which gave the rooms their name: the Agate Rooms.

Setting the gemstones on such a large surface area in such extravagant amounts represented quite a challenge for the artisans because these precious minerals are very hard and difficult to work, unlike marble. Nevertheless, the venture was a success. The magnificent rooms won the favour of the Empress; henceforth she began writing all of her personal correspondence here.
Catherine the Great wanted Roman-inspired baths – and she wanted a structure from Charles Cameron in the 1780s that was absolutely breathtaking.
Three large, red-brown jasper stones are embedded into the platinum-plated barrel of the plunger-type fountain pen and envision the aura of these magnificent rooms perfectly. Numerous polishings give these vibrantly grained gemstones an inimitable radiance.

The barrel is also engraved with a chain pattern that echoes a formative style element of the Agate Rooms. The cap of the fountain pen is adorned with grey, shimmering, Russian quartz with a facet finish.

Paying homage to the Agate Rooms, the Catherine Palace Pen of the Year brings the lustre and aesthetics of a major era alive in such a fascinating manner. Both editions come with an 18-carat, bicolour gold nib that is run in by hand. An end-cap protects the rotary knob of the plunger mechanism of the plunger-type fountain pen.•Platinum-plated barrel adorned with three large, reddish-brown jasper stones and engraved with a chain pattern.
