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. Furthermore Balzacs very own initials are finely lasered on the rhodium-coated Au 750 gold nib. Inspired by the dandyish style of French society in the 19th century, with the shape reflecting Balzacs bold stature.
