A stylish writing set in memory of the 350. birthday of Peter the Great in 2022. An ardent sailor and sea-goer himself, Peter the Great modelled his newly-established Russian navy on counterparts in the West, and its prowess was to be demonstrated in several subsequent battles. The navy's tercentenary in 1997 was marked with the unveiling of a statue over 300 feet high that served as the basis for this limited-edition writing set. The pen depicts the monarch on a large sailing ship, navigating with his left hand and holding a scroll in his right. The pen dish is embellished with the arms and national colours of Russia.
