An idea lives on
The new limited edition John F. Kennedy collection from Krone is a tribute the the thirty-fifth president of the US. The cap features a portrait of Kennedy, hand painted in an Impressionistic style using a patriotic palette of red, white and blue. The cap crown is adorned with 15 blue sapphires. A copy of the invitation to the inaugural ceremonies, held January 20, 1961, accompanies each pen.
Just 388 fountain pens and 388 rollerball pens are available. The fountain pen, priced at $4,800, has an 18-karat gold nib in fine and medium sizes; it is filled by cartridge or converter. The rollerball pen is priced at $4,700. Each is packaged in a commemorative box.
