La Couronne du Comte William of Orange Fountain Pen
La Couronne du Comte introduces in cooperation with Piedimonte Pen Design the limited edition William of Orange Fountain Pen. Piedimonte Pen Design is synonymous with passion in designing and creating writing instruments, modern with a unique Italian design, fitted with the special magnet piston filling system.
The cooperation resulted in a special limited edition honouring William of Orange and the Kingdom of the Netherlands: created in red, white and blue as a reference to the Dutch flag and orange in honour of Prince William of Orange and the House of Orange. The pen will be available in a limited edition (not numbered) of a maximum of 33 pieces (a reference to the birth year of William of Orange).

About William of Orange
William, Prince of Orange (24 April 1533 10 July 1584), also known as William the Silent or William the Taciturn (translated from Dutch: Willem de Zwijger), or more commonly known as William of Orange (Dutch: Willem van Oranje), was the main leader of the Dutch Revolt against the Spanish Habsburgs that set off the Eighty Years' War (15681648) and resulted in the formal independence of the United Provinces in 1581. He was born in the House of Nassau as Count of Nassau-Dillenburg. He became Prince of Orange in 1544 and is thereby the founder of the branch House of Orange-Nassau and the ancestor of the monarchy of the Netherlands. Within the Netherlands he is also known as Father of the Fatherland (Dutch: Vader des Vaderlands).

The motto of the prince was "Je Mantiendrai" (I will maintain) and this motto also became the motto of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1815.

Technical specifications
The pen is made of blue and red ebonite, combine with white acrylic and a transparent window, accompanied with a magnetic desk stand. It has a closed length of 152 mm and measures 147 mm open. The piston pen has an ink capacity of 1.5ml and the steel nib is made by JoWo.
