The body of this Platinum #3776 Century Nice Lavande fountain pen features an exquisite rose gold trim and a frosted lavender purple translucent body, representative of the French resort (Nice) located in the South of France. Lavande means lavender in French. It comes with a Platinum ink cartridge and a converter for use with bottled ink, and it features a 14k rose gold nib.
Like the other Platinum #3776 Century fountain pens, the Nice Lavande has the "Slip and Seal" cap mechanism that prevents the ink from drying out as well as the newly redesigned nib and feed to regulate the ink flow.
Nice is a world-renowned resort and tourist city located in Cote d’Azur in southern France. In early summer, Province region experiences its most beautiful season, with blooming fields of lavender that stretch all the way to the horizon. "Lavande" is the French word for lavender, which was the inspiration for this new color of pen.
The light purple lavender flowers, gently blowing in the early summer wind and bathed in soft light, are expressed through a sandblast finish applied on the high transparency resin barrel. Thereafter, sharp accent lines are added through shaper cutting. The pen also features an exquisite pink gold metal trim.
Lavande, the French word for lavender, is said to be the "queen of herbs," which is highly fragrant and has been prized as a medicinal herb since ancient Roman times for its healing effect. In flower language, lavender denotes "silence" due to the tranquilizing effect as well as its magically strong scent. As the flower language implies, this Lavande fountain pen creates a sense of calm, inviting one to breathe deeply into writing, making it unique among other Nice models.
The first 3000 pens will come with an individually numbered blotter card, then ongoing it will be a regular offering.
