Graf von Faber Castell | Heritage
Limited Edition Graf von Faber Castell Heritage Pens
Baroness Ottilie von Faber and Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen got married in 1898. Due to a clause in her grandfather's will, the company should keep the 'Faber' name. The marriage thus creates the new noble family of 'von Faber-Castell'. Their marriage and life provides the inspiration for the Limited Edition Heritage Ottilie and Alexander.
Several layers of lacquer applied and polished by hand provide the barrels with a subtle brilliance and depth. Polishing an angular barrel presents a craftsman with the challenge of having to ensure the shape remains as exact as possible. All metal parts are made of solid silver. The grip, cap finial and cap carry a silver hallmark. The front end of the elegantly fluted cap is decorated by the double knurling characteristic for our sterling silver writing instruments as well as the initials of Alexander and Ottilie.
The words 'Handmade in Germany' are engraved in the wide cap lip band. The end cap features the engraving 'Limited Edition Heritage, 1898 pieces' representing the year of the marriage of Ottilie and Alexander.
