Sheaffer Celebrates 100 Years with Two New Limited Editions
100 years is a tremendous milestone for a company that has built their reputation on quality and customer satisfaction over the century. For Sheaffer, it validates the renown "White Dot," a symbol of quality craftsmanship on all Sheaffer products. The fact that the company continues to produce pens that are highly desirable among collectors and new pen enthusiasts alike shows that they are still a relevant, valuable brand. The Ferrari by Sheaffer collection is a perfect example of how the company succeeds to be current with the trends of the luxury market. To celebrate this historic milestone, Sheaffer is releasing two exquisite limited editions that showcase the brand's heritage and their modern manufacturing prowess.
The Sheaffer Centennial Legacy Heritage Sterling Silver Fountain Pen
This pen is finely engraved in sterling silver, producing relief images of the first Sheaffer Factory and founder Walter A. Sheaffer on the .925 sterling silver barrel and cap. This edition is limited to 1,913 pieces worldwide, signifying the first year Sheaffer was started. The 18K solid gold, rhodium plated nib (in medium point only) is inlaid in the black front section of the pen. The tapered profile is taken from the high-end Legacy Heritage design and feels like a solid, yet comfortable pen to write with. The Centennial Legacy Heritage is packaged in a high gloss, elegant "Sheaffer Red" lacquer gift box, complete with a commemorative booklet, certificate of authenticity and complimentary ink.
The Sheaffer Centennial Limited Edition Sterling Silver Fountain Pen
The Centennial Limited Edition is a specially designed, "vintage"-style fountain pen that features a cylindrical barrel and cap. The finely engraved sterling silver cap and barrel feature images of the first Sheaffer Factory and pay tribute to founder Walter A. Sheaffer and his son. Feeling this pen in-hand, the heft and grand size of his pen really makes striking impression of luxury and value. Might be a bit unwieldy to write with casually, but this is the type of collector's item you probably would want to keep new, unused and in the original deluxe gift box.
The Sheaffer Centennial Solid Gold Fountain Pen
Now, we're talking! Barrel and cap feature the relief design in solid 18k gold with gold trim and clip. Only limited to 45 pieces worldwide, this is certainly the centerpiece to an impressive Sheaffer collection. The white dot atop the clip is replaced by a 2mm diamond. Fair warning, the price tag is not for the faint of heart. Start saving now!
