A great Montegrappa classic, reproduced for the 150th anniversary from foundation
A century after it first appeared, an ageless Montegrappa classic has returned. Launched in 1915, its creators could not have known that they designed an enduring masterpiece that would even find resonance in its name: Reminiscence.
This evergreen Elmo & Montegrappa writing instrument, from the early days of both the fountain pen and Montegrappa itself, re-emerged in 1983, then again in 2001, and now, in 2017, to mark 105 years since the founding of Montegrappa.
Remarkably, few of its aesthetic details have changed since its birth – in fact, almost none have been altered and this realisation speaks volumes about true and timeless designs.
Only the dimensions are slightly larger then those of the vintage models, but the air of gracefulness remains constant.
Its form - octagonal section of cap and body - is the essence of Montegrappa, that continues to symbolise the brand. Made entirely in polished sterling silver, the Reminiscence is adorned with hand-engraved Liberty designs.
Reminiscence 105th Anniversary Pens will be offered as fountain pens only, in a limited edition of only 105 examples, commensurate with the years that have passed since the formation of the brand.
The fountain pen is piston-fed, with ebonite feeder and 18k gold nib available in the grades Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad, personalized by a 105 logo.
The pen comes in a luxury wooden pen with a bottle of ink.
Being all hand-engraved,there is a wait time.
Delivery in 20-30 days from order.
