Ballpen & Pencil
To mark this historic occasion Yard-O-Led will release a matched pair of sterling silver ballpoint pen and pencil in a series of 100 individually numbered presentation cases. Each English Oak case has, like the writing instruments themselves, been hand crafted in England.
The sterling silver pencil is hand-chased with flowers and leaves native to California and Britain. The Royal Oak leaves, which nod to Great Britain and the Windsor crest, curl around the Californian Golden Poppy; both are entwined with the Bird of Paradise flower which grows wild both in Meghan’s Canadian place of birth and in Botswana where the couple took their first holiday together and slept under the African stars.
The sterling silver ball-pen has been decorated on the original Yard-O-Led Victorian engine-turning machine in a contemporary interpretation of the nineteenth century patterning that is so important a part of the heritage of the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, and of Yard-O-Led itself.
This special edition is limited to one hundred pairs, each with serial numbers from 1 to 100 on the silver clips and presented in individually numbered boxes handmade from English Oak.
