Despite various periods of turmoil during his reign, King George IV of Britain, with his appreciation for the fine arts, managed to shape British culture to his taste. His influence is still visible today. Because of the monarch's penchant for culture, art forms from the period of his reign are known as those of the "Regency Period"
The Patron of Art Edition The Price Regent pays tribute to this British king and patron of the arts with a pen truly regal appearance. A fascinating fretwork pattern winds over the deep blue precious resin barrel of the pen--in Edition 4810 this is in gold-plated 925 sterling silver, and in Edition 888 it is made of 750 solid gold. The cap is decorated by a crown whose delicate composition recalls the keen eye for detail of royal craftsmen of the past. In edition 888 the crown is decorated by seven rubies and three diamonds. The nib made of 18-carat gold, is decorated with a fine engraving of this insignia of the British monarchy in the Regency period.
The ten years he spent in waiting as the Prince Regent made him both famous and infamous. He established the "most perfect palace in Europe" in London. He sent his servants all the way to China to buy what he wanted. His never-ending devotion to art and culture influenced the style of his country like no other: King George IV, better known as the Prince Regent.
The edition produced in his honour is appropriately majestic: a net of calligraphic vermeil lines winds around the royal blue precious resin body. The golden lines on the cap entwine a little crown that emphasises the respect in which this historic patron is held.
This particular pen is in sealed condition. The packaging was opened, but the pen itself is still in its manufacturer's plastic seal.
