David Oscarson American Art Deco

The 15th Anniversary Collection is a celebration of the American Art Deco motif and fifteen years of excellence in design. This commemorative collection is the first to incorporate fifteen sections of Guilloché engraving, each taken from ten of the 21-plus Collection designs over the past fifteen years: Henrik Wigstrom, Winter, Crystal, Harvest, Celestial, Valhalla, Pierrot and Pierrette, Lewis & Clark, the Black Water Dragon and the Black Water Snake.

Crafted from .925 Sterling Silver, the 15th Anniversary (American Art Deco) Collection incorporates multiple levels of diamond-cut Guilloché engraving and a combination of Translucent and Opaque Hard Enamels. Each individual component is Guilloche-engraved and repeatedly kiln-fired and filed by hand, resulting in the beautiful and enduring Hard Enamel finish celebrated in each magnificent Collection piece.

The Fifteenth Anniversary (American Art Deco) Collection is the twenty-second in the David Oscarson™series of Limited Edition Writing Instruments. Produced in five primary color variations, each limited to production of 150 pieces (including Fountain Pen and Roller Ball styles). Secondary color variations of this Anniversary Collection will also be produced.

He takes this same mindful approach to the production of his pens. The use of hand-rendered guilloche and enamel, traditional art forms also seen in watchmaking, are emblematic of the brand, and Oscarson takes great care in keeping their quality pure.
