Pineider

Pineider

In 1774, the Italian Francesco Pineider, opened his first shop in the heart of Florence. He chose the magnificent Piazza della Signoria, opposite Michelangelo’s, striking work, David. 

Ever since, Pineider has been one of the world’s most respected makers of hand-dyed and watermarked stationery, leather goods, desk sets, and select home furnishings. Quite an impressive portfolio.

We think the most exciting news is that Dante del Vecchio, the designer behind almost every smash hit from Visconti, has joined Pineider to deliver pens which match the incomparable quality behind this storied Florentine brand. We can’t wait to see what Mr. del Vecchio does with the rich history and quality commitment of Pineider. It’s so rich a history from which to draw upon.


  • Pineider La Grande Bellezza Gemstones

    Designed by a creative master, La Grande Bellezza Gemstones exploits over thirty years of experience in the balance of form, proportion and color, creating a pen that is practically perfect; classic. 

    This 2018 collection is inspired from gemstones and their unique colors, realistically recreating semiprecious stones. This unique resin based new material has a high percentage of marble dust. Marble dust was added for three reasons: By adding this material, Pineider has produced a harder compound to increase the brilliance of each color with a final high gloss polish, meticulously applied by hand. The marble addition also serves to increase the specific weight of the material and consequently, the pen’s perfect balance. And finally, realistically recreating a marble design from the colored primers mixed with the resin. The result is incredible: The Lapis Blue or Malachite Green can be mistaken for the real stones. The black resin, named ‘Uber Black’, is so deep that any other black pen just looks somewhat dark. Gemstones is truly a new inspiration for collectors.

    Symbol of your passion

    Many young people today represent their ‘online self’ with an avatar. Just as that image is chosen carefully, this design represents what many are looking for in today’s market; sleek lines, comfortably weighted, jewelry quality trim, and resin which easily stands above the crowd. That’s Avatar from Pineider.

    The clip is fashioned into a goose quill. It is attached to the cap which has a strong magnetic closure. The cast central ring is inspired by the romantic skyline of Florence, its home. The marbled Italian resins chosen, are crafted by hand; no two pens are alike.

    The Avatar fountain pen sports a stainless-steel nib engraved with a fleur-de-lis. It uses either standard international ink cartridges or the included converter for bottle ink. The nib flows generously and responds to a light touch with a rewarding line. 

    A sample of Pineider Note Cards and matching Envelopes are included in each box. It’s a clear connection to the 244 year Florentine history as a respected maker of stationery and fine office goods.
