Michel Perchin Diamond & Ruby Gothic Limited Edition Fountain Pen #0/10. The Michel Perchin Gothic revives and reflects the magnificent medieval architecture and artistry of the Gothic Era. The Gothic Era came after the Romanesque Art Era and was before the Renaissance Art Era. The Gothic Architecture took over most of Western Europe and took over art more completely in the northern Alps.
This concurrent development of Gothic Architecture and Gothic Art took place in the mid 12th-century. Gothic Art became more developed in the 14th century and spread internationally. It continued to develop well into the 15th century.In fact, it continued to evolve into the 16th century in many areas, especially Germany. The artistic mediums mostly used in Gothic Art were sculpting, panel-painting, fresco, and illuminated manuscripts. Artist during this time were normally required to be in a painter's guild as cities were expanding and trade guilds were formed. Because of these guilds, more artist are known to us by name than any era before that time. The pen is hand-carved and engraved in solid 18-karat gold; it weighs 4.0 ounces.
Its cap hold 156 pave-set diamonds. The barrel, adorned with brilliant red hard enamel, is decorated with 144 diamonds and 36 cabochon rubies. The Gothic is available as a fountain pen only, and the 18-karat gold nib is accordingly accompanied by the finest of ebonite feeders.
