A cocktail party in conjunction with the INBM National Institute of Fine Arts Foundation was held within the shop of the Palace of Fine Arts on the 27th November, celebrating both the launch and to celebrate the milestone reached by the company.
This new finely engraved pen is an expression of beautiful Mexican architecture. The pen is an homage to icons of the Mexican Civilisation and was inspired by the history of the National Institute of Fine Arts and its incredible exhibition space.
The Palace of Fine Arts Pen Collection will be limited to only 78 sets of fountain pens and roller-balls, the reason for limited the collection to 78 was to celebrate the 78th anniversary of the Palace of Fine Arts. The main body of the pen is constructed in sterling silver, the dome of the Palace is etched into the barrel and the cap contains the coloours of the Mexican national flag. Around the central ring can be seen the word ‘Mexico’ and the stunning Carrara marble used in the construction of the Palace has been reflected in the pen, in the form of white resin.
