Capri Island - a recognized gem of the Bay of Naples. Its history bears points of Phoenician, Greek and Roman civilizations. However, it will remain primarily the island of the Sirens for the most, because, according to the legend, at these very rocky shores Odysseus ordered his companions to tie him to the mast of the ship so not to succumb to the sweet singing of mermaid, and not to jump into the depths of the sea. The amazing natural beauty of the island and mysterious stories about it reflected in the Ancora Capri pens collection. The barrel is decorated with mother of pearls - an endless source of light and shadow, and quaint play of colors from warm to cold and back are successfully emphasized trim elements on the barrel.
