Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition Elemento Olive Rollerball
The Graf von Faber-Castell Collection is celebrating the 250th anniversary of Faber-Castell with a very special limited edition.
Each Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition Elemento Olive Rollerball barrel is made of cross-grained olive wood, constructed with an innovative technique that enables the grain of the wood to be displayed in a way previously unknown.
Like a masterpiece of marquetry, the cross-grained olive wood is fitted into the barrel in six individual elements, which are varnished and hand-polished several times. Only in this way does the wood reveal its flamboyant and interesting structure and its quite extraordinary coloring of reddish brown through to honey gold.
The wood can also be found in the end cap of the different writing instrument
Only 1,000 pieces Graf Von Faber Castell Limited Edition Elemento Olive Rollerball were made worldwide.
