And the tradition continues ….
There is a rich history as it comes to making fountain pens for special occasions and pens being made for the state of Israel are no exception to this.
Leonardo Officina Italiana is proud to present to you the: Israel 75 years “Chai”
The combined forces of people, who have spent a lifetime designing, making and selling pens, have led to this special creation! The creation of this pen would not have been possible without the knowledge, sheer passion and friendship of a German enthusiast and collector of fountain pens. Together with two Dutch friends & fountain pen loves, who are responsible for the design of the Israel 75 years “Chai”, our friend was an inexhaustible source of knowledge and an important link in the communication. Without him, this project would not have been the success that it is today!
The ins & outs of the: Leonardo Officina Italiana Israel 75 years “Chai”:
There has gone in a lot of thought in the design of this pen. Every detail has been carefully chosen and has a connection with the state of Israel or Jewish life. For us it was not about extravagance of the design, but in meaning. More is not always better and sometimes simplicity is the best way to get a message across!
The colour of the pen could not be anything different than the blue and white, like the flag of Israel. We chose a marbled design, because the blue and white are inseparable, just like the Jewish people and the state of Israel!
Over the body, that has been made from blue and white resin, is a special sleeve, which is made in bronze (rhodium plated), silver or solid gold 18kt, depending on which edition. The sleeve shows the star of David with in the center the Chai or the number 75. The dates 1948-2023 (Roman/Latin calendar) and 5708-5783 (Hebrew calendar). The text “Israel 75 year statehood” both in English and Hebrew.
We at Leonardo Officina Italiana made this Israel 75 years “Chai” with love and passion and hope it will give you joy for life.
