Stipula Etruria Gaudi Casa Batllo Limited Edition

The S.T. Dupont Second (French) Empire Limited Edition is a very interesting pens that highlighted the great architecture during that period. Here is another not so expensive limited edition pen by Stipula as compare to S.T Dupont that pay tribute to the Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi (25 June 1852 - 10 June 1926), who build/model a few landmarks in his life time, and one of them is Casa Batllo.

Located in the one of the major avenues and important area of business and shopping in Barcelona Spain lie a very colorful architecture inspired by the sea elements. It is the Casa Batlló restored by Antoni Gaudí in 1877. It was later remodeled in the years 1904–1906. The local call it Casa dels ossos (House of Bones) as it has visceral, skeletal organic quality.


Like the actual Casa Batllo, the Stipula Casa Batllo Limited Ediion pen has every identifiable features of a Gaudi design; tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work.
The attractvive and colourful pen clip is took the shape from one of chimmey tower of the building. The color and styling of the clip too.
Like the clip, the pen cap trimming too is model after part of the building.

Are you able to give a guess where does Stipula get the inspiration for the pen trimming?

Hint: Have a closer look at the windows?
Did you manage to guess the correct answer?
The pen cap trimming is model after the metal work of the balcony.
