The Limited Edition 1868 reflects the Russian tsar era and is limited to the year of the first Edition of his most famous book "War and Peace". The colours of the Edition refer to the colours used on his first book covers and his pictures: blue and gold. The clip and the cap top are connected to the detail of the Tolstoy estate's entrance. The overall shape represents the simplicity and the real values of Tolstoy's philosophy in relation to his aristocratic origin. The hammered optic of the gold-coated barrel stands for the work done with his hands. On the other side, the rich pattern underneath the lacquered cap symbolises his time in Russia - dominated by the tsar and his aristocratic family. The wooden cone tells the story of his land Yasnaia Poliana, with its more than 100-year old trees, among which he is buried. The Au 750 solid gold nib is engraved with Tolstoy's portrait. The limitation of this Writers Edition is based on the year of the first Edition of his most famous book, "War and peace".
