A very lovely slim lacquered Elysee Parthenon in the very striking Trajan Cloisonne pattern in a beautiful red colour This pen is in excellent condition with no damage at all to report. The very unusual pattern of spiralled rectangles on this pen is delineated by thin strips of gold giving a cloisonne effect with the glossy red lacquer. The cap has a very detailed gold plated top with the Elysee logo engraved in the top surface. There are two "ribs" either side of this top button, and this detailing is carried on to the pocket clip, which is long and slightly coffin-shaped. The wide cap lip band is engraved "Elyseé" and "GERMANY". There are other gold bands at the end of the section adjacent to the nib and a lovely flared band at the junction of barrel and section where the cap fits. The barrel end is also gold plated and is shaped in such a way that the cap will "click" into place when posting. The elegantly shaped two-tone solid 18 carat gold nib has the Elysee logon again, and ab "M" for Medium at the base. The barrel unscrews to allow the filling of the pen. You can either use the original ink converter which is already fitted to the pen or a standard international ink cartridge (not supplied).
I have fully serviced this pen.
