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.

Limited Edition Montegrappa Brain Fountain Pen.

To create the limited edition Montegrappa Brain the designers at Montegrappa drew inspiration from the brain itself.  The cap of the pen representing the brain is rich and elaborate whilst the barrel of the pen is plain, illustrating a parallel to the human body, where all the riches are in the brain.  Decorating  the top of the cap is a cross section of the brain based on ancient drawings.  The cap also features a figural overlay of neurons and the pocket clip, which is spring loaded, represents the spinal cord.  To distinguish the fountain pen from the rollerball the pocket clips are inset with red and black lacquer respectively.  Engraved on the 18crt gold nib fitted to the Montegrappa Brain fountain pen is the image of a sea horse, which is a reference to the hippocampus, a major component of the human brain.  For further information regarding pricing and availability mail brain@penbox.co.uk .  The Montegrappa Brain above is one of an edition of 1012 available in silver.
