Model: 202RL02

Manufactured by Visconti in 2009 to celebrate the foundation of famous publishing house Vallecchi's magazine “LACERBA”, considered by many to be the quintessential “poster” of Futurism art. Many important artists like Severini, Boccioni, Marinetti and Picasso were featured in the Lacerba magazine. “Lacerba” was born in Florence on 1 January 1913.

The design of Lacerba reflects the dualism of that artistic period. Futuristic painting is engraved on the pen body with a “scrimshaw” technique, while sterling silver and black bands on the cap are inspired by the Art Nuoveau Period. On the body of the pen, the scrimshaw technique has been used to portray “La Danza Serpentina” (snake dance from Severini. Severini’s painting as well as other design elements on the cap and barrel have been effected using the antique technique of scrimshaw on metal. With this technique the engravings are filled in with an alloy of copper, sterling silver, lead and sulphur. A limited edition series of 913 pieces. Long sold out.

This item will be carefully packed and shipped via registered and insured mail.

  • I want to cancel this order which was not shipped or received. Also Order 9874899 did have a nib. A nib was shown on the sale ad. Please let me know next steps how to return. I will let Amex know.

    Response by seller
    I sincerely apologize for this. Usually we ship the same day we receive payment. For some reason your package was packaged and labeled but was never sent.

    I double checked and the nib IS included.
    Please let me know what you want to do. I would be more than happy to overnight this to you, or give you a full refund.
