The Alexander Fleming Limited Edition Collection stands as a tribute to his contributions to the world of medicine and to all mankind.
A rendition of his signature stands in high relief around the pen barrel, representing countless prescriptions that have been written - not only by Fleming, but by millions of doctors all over the world.
The cap features a reconstruction of Alexander Fleming’s original petri dish on which his original discovery was made.
The background of the pen is engraved in a vertical motif, interrupted by delicate stems, branches and spores, representing penicillium as it appears under a microscope slide, or ‘under the glass’.
The clip emulates an inoculating loop, which is used to apply bacteria to a petri dish during experimentation, and the gripping section is engraved with the chemical formula for penicillin.
As with all David Oscarson Collection pieces, the Alexander Fleming Collection is created by combining the expertise of Guilloché engraving with the artistic mastery of Hard Enamel. The Alexander Fleming Collection is the twenty-third in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition writing instruments.
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.
This special edition of 8 pieces is in all white, with the mold on the petri dish in grey
