Visconti have now ceased making mechanical pencils.



After the phasing out of the original Visconti Van Gogh pens it was decided that the gap needed to be filled. Visconti was inspired by Van Gogh's work and the multitude of colours, textures and styles that he used to create his masterpieces.

The entire range of Visconti Van Gogh pens is a hymn to colour; they worked very hard to find the right formulas to ensure that the images would be represented faithfully.

The paintings that are retold in the range are - Sunflowers, Starry Night, The Iris and his Self Portraits. Never before has a pen been designed from a specific canvas - a very difficult work considering the diversity of the objects and techniques that are used on each of the paintings.
Made in Florence Palazzo, Visconti make distinguished and luxurious pens. Founded in 1988, the company is led by Dante Del Vecchio.

Located in the luxury and super luxury market, their pens range in price from £100 to - well, how much would you like to pay? They’ll always embellish an already fine pen with precious materials, jewels and exquisite craftsmanship. Whatever the price, you will get a beautiful pen made with the best materials and designed with imagination.

Over the years they have come up with many innovative approaches to pen manufacture, as well as nods to the golden age of fountain pens – including a continued use of celluloid – “The pen makers gold”.

  • The Homo Sapiens, made with lava from Mount Etna, is one of the great pens of the early 21st century. It is a plunger filler – updating a system first developed in the 1920’s.

  • It features the safe lock closing system – ingenious, reliable and positive

  • Mid range pens use an effective and convenient magnetic closure system.

  • The 23 carat palladium nibs for their top end pens is unique; they deliver a unique writing experience.

  • The “Smartouch” chrome steel nib, paired with the mosquito filler, offer a clean and effective means of fill a fountain pen.

Owning a Visconti pen will be a constant source of pleasure, and for those of us who love pens always provide interest, and sometimes amazement!
