The Old Man and the Sea

The Heroism of Hemingway




Precious metals, enamel and kotibé mahogany retell one of modern literature’s greatest tales. Ernest Hemingway’s 1952 story of the tenacious fisherman, Santiago, is regarded by many as his most iconic work. Through its heroic narrative, we learn that those who live with courage and integrity can be destroyed, but not defeated. Extraordinary writing deserves an extraordinary writing instrument.

Anniversary Edition. Silver and vermeil writing editions mark 70 years since Hemingway’s "The Old Man and the Sea" was awarded the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Meticulously created with lost wax casting, “The Fight” portrays Santiago’s struggle with the giant marlin: a symbol of epic perseverance in full-length, sculpted silver.

A literary showpiece. A collector’s display case memorialises the fisherman’s skiff and the fabled marlin: a monument to man’s struggle to overcome the forces of nature.

Our newest tribute to Hemingway continues more than a century of comradeship. Visitors to Bassano del Grappa can visit the Hemingway and the Great War Museum, located only metres from our premises.
