When Gaudí died in 1926, the basilica was between 15 and 25 percent complete. Work continued after Gaudí's death, until it was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War in 1936. Parts of the unfinished Basilica and Gaudí's models and workshop were destroyed during the war. Present design is based on reconstructed versions of the plans that were burned in a fire as well as on modern adaptations and construction is estimated to be completed in 2026.
As with all David Oscarson Collection pieces, the Sagrada Familia collection is created by combining the expertise of Guilloché engraving with the artistic mastery of Hard Enamel.
Seven-sided geometric sunbursts are emblematic of the instantly-recognized canopy which hangs above the altar inside the La Sagrada Familia Basilica while encircled crosses mirror the iconic ornamentation of the spiraling spires above. Wrapping around the crown of the cap in high relief is Antoni Gaudi’s signature.
Each David Oscarson Writing Instrument is available as a Fountain Pen in Fine, Medium, or Broad. It is also available as a Rollerball Pen or can be purchased as a convertible set to switch between the two writing modes.
