This writing instruments collection is dedicated to Basel, a city of great cultural tradition.
Since the Medieval Age it was allowed to hold official Trade Fair (1471), has a University (1459) an establishment of paper mills (1433) and therefore also many printers and humanists. Art is a living thing in Basel and the people have never been afraid of the avant-garde. In 1967 the city voters contributed to the purchase of two Picasso paintings for the local Museum of Fine Arts.
