D-Parmy La Premi鑢e Bois de Rose Rollerball / Ballpoint Pen
The beauty of wood is extra accentuated by the intarsia decoration on this pen: the Bois de Rose base with inlays of ebony and maple wood, give the pen a very sophisticated look.
Bois de Rose (Rosewood), obtained from tropical trees (Dalbergia frutescens), owes its name to the intense fragrance of rose that persists over time, even many years after processing. A very hard wood, it is used in the manufacture of fine furniture and musical instruments. It was widely used by Italian, French, and English inlayers and cabinet-makers throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.
The metal components of the pen are all in high-alloy gold-plated brass.

Intarsia, or inlay, is a type of decoration created by combining small pieces of wood or other materials of different colours. Already widely practiced in the 14th century, inlay reached its maximum flourishing between 1440 and 1550. Up to the end of the 15th century, inlay was an art form practiced mainly in Italy. It later spread beyond the Alps.
