The Pierrot and Pierrette Collection is the sixth in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition writing instruments. Produced in two color variations, each will be limited to production of 88 pieces (including fountain pens and roller balls).
The legend of Pierrot and Pierrette began in the 17th century when Jean-Antoine Watteau committed to canvas two clowns who were later made famous by the Italian Commedia dell’arte. This timeless Duo was then adapted to French pantomime where Pierrot is a noble and fun-loving clown; he is lonely and in love with the beautiful Pierrette, whose affections run hot and cold. When his affections are returned, they can be seen sitting together on the crescent of the moon. When she ignores him, Pierrot sits on the moon by himself, strumming his mandolin and pining for his beloved Pierrette.
In the spirit of artistic mastery and the tradition of Old World craftsmanship, this inspiring Collection combines the centuries-old technique of Guilloché with the art and expertise of Hard Enamel. The Pierrot and Pierrette Collection is the first to incorporate three levels of Guilloché and five colors of translucent and opalescent (white) or opaque (black) hard enamel on each Collection piece. In keeping with the neutral backgrounds, the Duo is finished in Rhodium vermeil.
The Art Deco design of this Limited Edition requires three separate stages of engraving. The entire body of the pen is first cut down to the level of the background, leaving the outlines of the overlapping circles in high relief. The canvas pattern is then engraved onto the surface of the body of the pen (seen only on the Pierrette). The third stage of engraving applies the sunburst motif to the surface of each circle, maintaining the focal point center in high relief.
