D-Parmy La Premi鑢e Ebano Rollerball / Ballpoint Pen
The beauty of wood is extra accentuated by the intarsia decoration on this pen: the Ebony base with inlays of bois de rose and maple wood, give pen a very sophisticated look.
Ebony is a dark, compact hardwood that comes from different species of trees of the genus Diospyros of the Ebenaceae family. The most sought-after quality, due to its black colour and very fine grain, is found in Diospyros ebenum and Diospyros melanoxylon, which are native to the Indian subcontinent.
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.
