Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

Visconti is renown for creative and innovative pen craftsmanship, and inspired by the success of the Homo Sapiens series, Visconti wondered if it was possible to produce a pen made from the material that best represents Florence: the Cotto Fiorentino Terracotta. The result is the astounding new Visconti Brunelleschi limited edition pen. A pen that pays homage to the great Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi, who designed and engineered the dome of the Florentine cathedral – The Duomo – and is the largest structure in the world made of Cotto Fiorentino Terracotta.


An age-old traditional product, man has been manufacturing artifacts in terracotta since roughly 5000 BC. It was from Etruria that terracotta was introduced to Rome, used by the building industry in the imperial capital primarily to manufacture bricks and tiles. The Etruscans achieved high level of excellence in this field, adorning their temples with terracotta artifacts and using the material to make tiles and cornices, home furnishings and pottery, statuettes and vases.

The Visconti Brunelleschi

The Brunelleschi limited edition pen is an oversized, eight-sided pen accurately reflecting the shape of the cathedral dome. Weighing roughly 45 grams (the actual Dome is 45 meters wide) it is the perfect weight for daily use. Its shape, like that of the Visconti Divina, is in the ideal proportion based on Leonardo da Vinci’s Divine Proportion, which makes the size of the cap 0.618 the size of the barrel. The pen’s material, a Cotto Fiorentino terracotta resin composite, has a dark brick color and many of its own special characteristics. The color is similar to the red ebonite so dearly cherished by collectors of vintage pens. Unlike ebonite, however, the terracotta compound is extremely stable, it does not dull with age and it is considerably more shock-resistant. The ring on the pen barrel is decorated with an engraving of the Cathedral’s windows surrounding the dome.

The pen features Visconti’s flexible 23kt palladium Dreamtouch nib available in XF, F, M, B, BB and Stub widths and fills with a high vacuum power filler. The pen’s lock system, a Visconti patent, is the well-known Hook Safe Lock method that allows the user to close the pen by rotating it by only 20°, thus making it almost impossible to open the cap by accident. All trims are made from rose vermeil gold  and the Brunelleschi is limited to 388 numbered pieces. Each pen is beautifully presented in a collector’s set including a glass inkwell with ink, a matching Visconti traveling ink well also made from terracotta, eye dropper  and a terracotta tile that says Brunelleschi all packaged in a luxury eco-leather box.
