Silver Limited Edition Montegrappa Amerigo Vespucci

In the late fifties, a US Navy aircraft carrier encountered a beautiful looking sailing ship with a hull painted in alternating horizontal black and white stripes, three tall masts with massive sails. When it came alongside, the Americans asked “What ship are you?” “Ship Vespucci of the Italian Navy” came the reply. “You are the most beautiful ship in the world” responded those on the US Navy aircraft carrier. In 2001 Montegrappa produced a limited edition fountain pen paying tribute to the Vespucci, having a cap crafted of black and ivory coloured celluloid with a sterling silver overlayed barrel featuring an engraving of the ship in full sail, engraved floral decoration, and a silver figural pocket clip.

From the “Le Signore del Mare” (The Ladies of the Sea) pen collection from Montegrappa.
