The Pen is Mightier than the Sword' -Theo Fabergé's creative spirit at the moment of his Eightieth Birthday, applauds the spirit of positive communication that lies behind the old dictum.
His Signature Egg is a wonderful gift and desk ornament, crafted in french-polished Bubinga Wood and adorned with the ornamental turning for which he is justly renowned. Inlaid within the wood, seven circles represent the continents of the world. Decorated with 24-carat gold and surmounted with a cabochon ruby, in the Fabergé family tradition the Signature Egg holds a surprise - the pen, turned on Theo's Holtzappfel lathe dating from 1862. Drawn magically from the centre of the Egg, it arms the proud owner with the vocabulary of wisdom and culture.
