Montegrappa is the most long-established of Italian pen manufacturers, having opened their doors in 1912. American authors Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos are among the many celebrated artists and writers who have used this company's writing instruments. Still produced in the original factory on the banks of the River Brenta near Vicenza, Montegrappa fountain pens have maintained their reputation for meshing lustrous design with smooth writing characteristics.
The octagonal Emblema is one of the most striking designs from Montegrappa. Precious Celluloid in Blue, Charcoal, or Red is adorned with Sterling Silver trim. A matching ring of celluloid surrounds the 1912 disk on the top of the cap. Available with an 18k gold nib with ebonite feeder in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad, this elegant and luxurious pen showcases Italian pen design at its finest. Retail $675. Our price $540
Original design is the hallmark of the celluloid and sterling silver model Miya.

The two-tone 18k gold nib with ebonite feeder is available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, and, uniquely among the Montegrappa pens, we also offer a Montegrappa Stub. Retail $595. Our price $476
