Founded in 1980 in Venice, Italy, Bortoletti Fonderia Artistica makes beautiful products for people who take pleasure in reading and writing letters, and in keeping a well-stocked desk. Add personality to your wedding invitations and other correspondence with this writing set. It includes a wooden dip pen with a fine nib, a wax seal with a wooden handle, a burgundy wax stick (good for about 20 seals), a metallic cream for highlighting your wax seal, and a 30-milliliter inkwell that doubles as a pen stand.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of 56 designs for your wax seal, including 30 different symbols and every letter of the alphabet. Choose gold or silver for the wax seal cream.
For portions of the inkwell and pen stand, Bortoletti Fonderia Artistica uses a process called lost-wax casting. This method of metal casting involves creating a mold using a wax model and then pouring molten metal into that mold. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained way. Relatively uncommon these days outside of the best jewelry workshops, lost-wax casting results in intricate pieces with a very high level of precision.
