The design of the Writers Edition created in honour of Agatha Christie is based on the classic style of the early 1920s. Around the cap, made of black precious resin, winds a snake made of 925 sterling silver, which hints at the creeping tension of the author's novels and also serves as the clip of the pen.
The eyes of the snake are set with two rubies that glint bewitchingly. The head of the snake is also engraved on the rhodium-plated 18-karat gold nib. Each Agatha Christie Writers Edition pen is also decorated with the signature of the grande dame of the crime novel.
Agatha Christie captivated millions of people all around the world with the clever narrative style and brilliantly constructed plots of her novels, plays and short stories.
In Miss Marple, she created a memorable cult figure of the crime novel genre, who, in films such as "4.50 from Paddington" solved even the most tricky cases with charm and astuteness, and even today has loyal fans the world over.

This pen is inspired by Shaw's best-known character from his play "Pygmalion": Eliza Doolittle. Just as Eliza, a poor flower girl, is brought up to be an aristocratic lady, so the fine platinum of the pen is replaced more and more towards the cap by the opulent dark green of the precious resin.
George Bernard Shaw, the great master of language, was born in Ireland in 1856. Although he left his native land at the age of 20 to become a theatre critic and writer in London, he always retained links with his country. He used his talent not only to create magnificent, subtle dramatic pieces, but always in addition to highlight the problems of the disadvantaged. For this reason, his name is one of few to be associated with brilliant repartee and sharp-tongued criticism of social evils. The quintessence of this unique artist's attitude to life is his play "Pygmalion", in which the poor
