Mosaics have a long history of use as decoration on walls, floors, ceilings and artworks by ancient civilizations. And now, Montegrappa, the oldest Italian pen manufacturer, have been inspired by the tradition of the mosaic for decorative effect with their new range of Montegrappa Mosaico pens.
Since 1912 Montegrappa have been manufacturing prestige pens and Penbox are pleased to be an authorised Montegrappa retailer.
With a sense of devilry Montegrappa presents the new Limited Edition Montegrappa Pirates, the latest addition to their Cult series of pens. As can be seen above the pen is adorned with the classic symbols of Piracy at sea. Visit Penbox for more details on the Montegrappa Pirates.
In 1994 Montegrappa produced the Montegrappa Two Roses limited edition pens in silver and gold. Twenty two years later in 2016 an as new example, complete, and as originally supplied can be found on The Pen Box website.
In 2008 Montegrappa produced the Montegrappa Modigliani fountain pen in tribute to the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. The pen was available in a two finishes, one of which was blue resin and silver as pictured above, and as a fountain pen, rollerball or ballpoint. Eight years have passed since the pen was first produced and the final fountain pen that we have has just made its way onto our limited edition pens web page. This pen is no longer available from Montegrappa.
The Visconti London Fog Homo Sapiens fountain pen is the most recent demonstrator fountain pen from the Italian pen manufacturer. Visconti have produced a limited edition of 888 numbered fountain and rollerball pens. More details about this fountain pen can be found on our website.
Whilst sorting boxes in the Penbox stock room we have decided to put these pens on sale. This time we have a limited number of the Parker Duofold Demi fountain pens on offer which were first introduced in 2008 and are now discontinued. The Duofold Demi was a smaller version of the Parker Duofold which was unusual in that due to its short length it only accepted the Mini Parker ink cartridges. The 18k nib however was the same as that fitted to the standard models. At the moment we have four finishes available and they are; pearl and black veined, amber check and black with ST or GT trim.
The crimson, yellow, purple, red and blue colours that accompany the beauty of the sun rising and painting its light onto a new day. These are the colours that have been captured by the raden and maki-e artist who was commissioned to produce the latest of the limited edition raden fountain pens from Pelikan, and Penbox are pleased to report that we now have several of the M1000 Pelikan Raden Sunrise Red pens in stock. We expect the edition of 333 fountain pens to sell out quickly.
