"The dragon teaches you that if you want to climb high you have to do it against the wind."
-Chinese proverb


Chinese New Year 2024 is the Year of the Wood Dragon, which begins on February 10 and ends on January 28th, 2025. The Dragon is a symbol of strength, courage, creativity and innovation in Chinese culture, and the wood element adds flexibility, adaptability and growth to its energy. 2024 is expected to be a year of potential and opportunity for those who are willing to embrace change and challenge themselves. The dragon also has a special significance in Chinese mythology and history. The five-clawed dragon was reserved for the emperor and the nobility, who claimed to be descendants of the dragon.

This pen is crafted from gold-plated sterling silver, intricately engraved to depict the shape of an exuberant fie-clawed Chinese dragon proudly standing among a background of small steam clouds. In fact, in Chinese culture, contrary to the West, the dragon is not associated with the element of fire as much as with water, steam, and clouds. Silhouetted against a red background, a traditionally auspicious color, the figure is further accentuated by the adept use of colored enameling and by a finely etched dragon-scale texture visible under a layer of semi-transparent enamel. To emphasize its auspicious power and nobility, Visconti designers decided to further enrich the look of the Imperial Dragon featured on the barrel by setting a precious red ruby in its eye. Even the clip detail was conceived to represent a golden Chinese dragon flying high over the clouds.

Visconti crafts the Year of the Dragon pen with iconic and exciting new details:

  • A beautiful clip modeled after a golden dragon
  • The fountain pen features Visconti’s high power vacuum filling system and in-house 18kt gold nib
  • Screw lock closure
  • Enameled sterling silver with a set ruby detail
  • Limited edition out of 224 pieces worldwide

Even the box that holds the pen is a little gem of design inspired by Far Eastern culture, reminiscent of the octagonal structures of Chinese pagodas. The cover of the box features an elaborate engraving on a gold background depicting the imperial Dragon to which the entire collection is dedicated. A rectangular window allows a view of this spectacular pen.
