Inspired by the Dandyism of the 19th century and the elegance of Balzac himself, the precious black resin and gray lacquer of the barrel, with its guillochéd refinement, makes reference to the typical cutaway favored by refined Parisian gentlemen of the time. While the oversized shape of the pen mirrors Balzacs bold stature, the clip, embellished with turquoise lacquering on its top, symbolizes the authors walking stick.
The platinum and gold-coated rings refer to the different classes that emerged in French society in the early 19th century - often a central theme in the works of Balzac.
