ST Dupont Announces Limited Edition Phoenix Renaissance
One might almost believe that the mythological Phoenix has been watching over S.T. Dupont ever since it was founded in 1872. It offered its wings to the master goldsmiths to adorn their hallmark and instilled in them a fervent love for fire that was transformed into an art.
PHOENIX RENAISSANCE SYMBOL OF CREATION IN PERPETUAL RENEWAL
The “Phoenix Renaissance” Limited Edition is inspired by the legendary journey of the firebird that returns to the temple of Heliopolis, after being reborn. This collection, on the theme of revival, superbly illustrates the endlessly renewed inspiration of the House craftsmen, who express themselves by combining ancient techniques in the creation of a unique red flamed natural lacquer adorned with smoky and fiery nuances.
The gold-toned reflections of the natural lacquer are enhanced by gold-finished inserts, hand-sculpted individually in the effigy of the Phoenix and adorned with two precious citrine stones. The majestic hand-sculpted Phoenix statue is mounted on a flamed lacquered stand with gold finishes. The bird carries the 2016 majestic pieces created for this collection.
PRESTIGE WRITING INSTRUMENTS AND LIGHTER
The refinement of S.T. Dupont writing instruments is reflected in every detail, from the elegant Phoenix hand-sculpted in bronze with a gold finish to the engraved yellow-gold rings setting off the flame-red natural lacquer. A precious 0.37 carat citrine stone adorns the pen’s flexible clip. The exceptional lighter of the collection splendidly represents the Phoenix with its majestic wings and clasping to its heart, a flamboyant precious 0.75 carat citrine stone. Each item in this collection is limited to 2016 pieces.
This Edition limited to 30 numbered pieces amplifies the authority of the “Phoenix Renaissance” writing instrument and lighter. Destined for the most astute connoisseurs, it is superbly presented in a triptych case hand-finished in black lacquer with the symbol of the Phoenix to enter the universe of the firebird.
