The Egyptian Hieroglyphs Ballpoint Pen features hieroglyphs taken from a traditional offering inscription on a false door belonging to Metjetji, a noble of the Old Kingdom, who was the Director of the Office of the Tenants of the Palace under King Unis of Dynasty 5 (ca. 23532323 B.C.). The Egyptians used the hieroglyphic script for nearly 3,500 years, from about 3100 B.C. until the end of the third century A.D. A highly complex form of writing, the script was the specialty of a limited number of professional scribes. The glyphs on the pen include a jackal, a snake, several species of birds, a water sign, and more. The highlight of the pen is the smooth twist-action ballpoint system. Brass base metal body with lacquer finish and gold plate accents. Handsomely presented in a black hinged lacquered wood gift box. Uses the smooth writing Waterford Ballpoint refills. One refill is included with the pen. Limited 1 Year Warranty. Proceeds from the sale of this product are used to support The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
