S.T. Dupont President Jules Verne Shoot the Moon Limited Edition Fountain Pen - # 0121/1865
This new Limited Edition collection is the result of a perfect match between two remarkable 19th century celebrities. In 1872, Simon Tessot-Dupont invented the art of travel for leading figures f the time. His counterpart, Jules Verne, foresaw travel in outer space.
The theme of "Shoot the Moon" stems from the french writer's most famous work, "From the Earth to the Moon". Inspired by this otherworldly novel, in which three adventures reach the moon on board a vessel shot out of a huge canon, the craftsman designed and created new, exceptional and ultra-sophisticated object.
The Prestige series is marked by articulated gold parts and decorations engraved on hand-painted Chinese lacquer. These warm shades amplify the pale glow of the fascination moonstone which perfectly complements each piece. To mark the year the novel was published, 1,865 numbered editions have been made.
