Place Vendome Fountain Pen #482 / 1810. Place Vendome Paris, the eternal city of light, is enriched by its places for romantic strolls, such as the banks of the Seine or the Pont des Arts, its literary quarters. Such as Saint-Germain-des Pres, its Haussmann-style grey stone buildings, and its many internationally-renowned squares.
Place Vendome, commissioned by King Louis XIV and designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, architect of the Palace of Versailles, is defined by its majestic proportions and a strong sense of symmetry, as well as by its octagonal shape, unique in the world. A large number of sophisticated sculptures embellish the sand-coloured stone of its buildings.
It is also one of the most emblematic squares of French 17th century architecture. Following his victory at Austerlitz at the beginning of the 19th century, Napolean enriched the square by erecting the Vendome Column, made using the bronze from cannons left behind by the Austrians after the battle. Dupont has engraved into each palladium cap and barrel, a quote from Napoleon: "Impossible n'est pas Francais" (Impossible is not French).Each Place Vendome pen features eight hematite stones hand placed into the cap and an individual serial number from the 1810 pieces produced worldwide.
