Pensinasia is a collection of more than a decade of pens, fine writing instruments, and limited edition collectables. Over the past years, I have painstakingly detailed and photographed each pen I have owned, recording down every minute detail within this website. If you are a pen lover like me, you will find Pensinasia to be your definite source of knowledge to fountain pens.

S T Dupont Limited Edition 140 Years Anniversary Elysee (Line D) Paris 1872 Yellow Gold Fountain Pen

S.T.Dupont launched a new bespoke edition named Paris 1872 as a tribute to the year the House was founded by Simon Tissot-Dupont.
The style of engraving on the Paris 1872 edition is inspired by the Garnier Opera House. Simon Tissot-Dupont was the official photographer of this architectural masterpiece commissioned by Napoleon III, before becoming trunk-maker to the élite of the day.
The result is a harmonious blend of timeless classicism with the designs of the Elysée and Ligne 2 ranges and the decorative, luxurious curves of Second Empire style. As a symbol of this union the lighter, available in palladium or yellow or pink gold, bears a crest with the House’s signature letter D at its centre.

In a tribute to French craftsmanship, items in the Paris 1872 edition are created in collaboration with Master Engraver Frédéric Krill. It takes no less than 35 hours to engrave the Ligne 2 lighter, while the Elysée fountain pen requires 25 hours of meticulous work. Patience and time are the cornerstones of this craft.
Only 1872 lighters and fountain pens will be made for the Paris 1872 limited edition.
This new creation is a magnificent expression of S.T.Dupont’s attachment to the House’s heritage. It is attached to its history, of course, but also to its origins as a manufacturer of exceptional products for an exceptional clientele. This tradition still continues today through the pursuit of innovative and genuine inspiration.
