The Maison Caran d’Ache has developed the Oberalp limited edition in tribute to the Alpine spirit that is inextricably bound up with the intrinsic Swiss identity. The fascination of the mountains and its lively folklore, expressed through song, paintings, paper-cutting or the engravings on chalet façades, represent a living heritage that perpetuates the enduring Alpine spirit.
A narrative frieze motif evokes the symbols of Alpine life and the idyllic scenery of the Swiss mountains. A second frieze, engraved on the other three sides of the pen, portrays the beauty of edelweiss flowers. Crafting these miniature frieze motifs reflects the finesse of the traditional Alpine art of paper – or wood-cutting. The body of the fountain pens and roller pens features the finely engraved outlines of three edelweiss blossoms.
