Visconti Opera Demonstrator Silver Dust Limited Production Fountain Pen
This pen has been lovingly used so there is some light blue ink staining as can be seen in the picture. It does have a lovely swirl design, some of these did not have much swirls to them. It comes complete with box, papers, and traveling inkwell.
Visconti has seen many successes in their Demonstrator pens from the launch of the Van Gogh Clear in 2002, to the Opera Master demonstrator revealing the double reservoir filling system to the world for the first time. We are thrilled to introduce the latest Demonstrator pen, the Visconti Silver Dust.
The Silver Dust Collection takes its inspiration from cosmic dust. Cosmic dust is a type of particle created from tiny crystals released from stars. It is formed when a star, like the sun, sends out atoms. In August 2014, scientists announced the collection of possible interstellar dust particles from the Stardust spacecraft after its return to Earth in 2006. Since studying the particles, scientists have found that cosmic dust exists all over the planet and enters Earth’s atmosphere every day. Visconti has decided to celebrate this historical event with the launch of this exquisite special edition pen.
The Visconti Silver Dust is a limited edition with only 600 pieces crafted and released worldwide. It is based on the iconic Opera body, featuring the squared circle form, a combination of a square and a circle, to create the perfect ergonomic shape for a writing implement.
It has a clear body in acrylic resin with particles that recall the silver cosmic dust.
The cap is made from a solid block of specially selected Lucite resin made to fit the high-quality standards of Visconti in both strength and brightness. The heart of this collection lies within the body of the pen. The result is a completely translucent body swirled with particles that recall the silver cosmic dust. The famous double reservoir filling system can be seen amid the swirls.
