The Faggionato Laque Coquille d'Oeuf fountain pen is a unique luxury writing instrument that was handcrafted over 4 months and contains real eggshells around both center bands. This amazingly beautiful fountain pen is constructed from 50 layers of charcoal-infused Black lacquer. The eggshells were added to the barrel and cap center bands after 30 layers of lacquer formed the base of the fountain pen. After the eggshell pattern was finished, another 20 layers of Black lacquer were applied. Each additional layer was sanded to reveal the eggshells while the interstices between the eggshell fragments filled with lacquer, ultimately providing the smooth fountain pen body. The threaded screw cap cannot be posted, but is adorned with a curved Gold-plated Stainless Steel pen clip that has been coated with baked Black lacquer before being sanded and polished. This cartridge/converter fountain pen comes equipped with a smooth-writing Medium #6 14-Karat Gold nib that was tuned by Frédéric Faggionato to his specifications.

Faggionato Laque Coquille d'Oeuf (Eggshell) Fountain Pen

The Faggionato Laque Coquille d'Oeuf fountain pen is a unique luxury writing instrument that was handcrafted by 25 working hours over 4 months and contains real eggshells around both center bands. This amazingly beautiful fountain pen is constructed from 50 layers of charcoal-infused Black lacquer. Each layer of lacquer was allowed to harden for 24-48 hours and then sanded before another layer of lacquer was applied. The eggshells were added to the barrel and cap center bands after 30 layers of lacquer formed the base of the fountain pen. The eggshells were cleaned, stripped of the inner membrane, bleached and then fragmented. They were individually hand-placed using a Japanese laying method where the inner side was glued to the lacquer until the desired pattern was achieved. After the eggshell pattern was finished, another 20 layers of Black lacquer were applied, again with 24-48 hours in between application to allow the lacquer to harden. Each additional layer was sanded to reveal the eggshells while the interstices between the eggshell fragments filled with lacquer, ultimately providing the smooth fountain pen body. The threaded screw cap cannot be posted, but is adorned with a curved Gold-plated Stainless Steel pen clip that has been coated with baked Black lacquer before being sanded and polished. The Faggionato Laque Coquille d'Oeuf (Eggshell) is a cartridge/converter fountain pen that comes equipped with a smooth-writing Medium #6 14-Karat Gold nib that was tuned by Frédéric Faggionato to his specifications. It is a gorgeous fountain pen that comes packaged in a black Faggionato gift box with white foil stamped lettering on the outside, a velveteen lining and a magnetic closure.
