Caran d’Ache marks 100 years of creativity
2015 marks 100 years of creativity based on a love of colour and the art of writing at Caran d’Ache.
To celebrate this milestone it has created an outstanding collection of five unique writing instruments – the Collection Privée, dedicated to art in general, the art of enamelling in particular, and the history of Geneva.
The five writing instruments in the collection are decorated with the emblems of Geneva’s cultural history. They are all fountain pens in 18-carat solid gold, each with an enamel miniature hand painted by artist and master enameller Andree Peaudecerf. The tips and caps are in authentic black chinese lacquer.
“I am very pleased that I was able to create the enamelled pens for Caran d’Ache that gave me so much for almost 30 years and that I still love dearly! It is thanks to the company that I started enamel again. Caran d’Ache will always be ‘my company!'” said the artist who celebrates her 83rd birthday this year.
