Pre-Owned Pens: 1691: Montegrappa: Dragon
In 1995, Italian artisans created the limited edition Montegrappa Dragon. Using Montegrappa's stunning hand-turned celluloid for a foundation, they built on top of it a sterling silver imperial dragon from the ancient Chinese traditions. Dragons were often seen as a symbol of wealth and power in ancient Chinese society, but only an emperor would be permitted to have a 5-clawed dragon, such as the one here. Each dragon was handmade and sports red stones for eyes. This pen is like new, complete with its many layers of boxes and papers. The nib is a two-tone 18k gold with a fine point. The display box has a sterling silver seal. None of the sterling silver has been polished or cleaned, to preserve any chemical coating the company might have used to reduce tarnishing. A little discoloration is visible, especially on the box seal. The filler piston is a little stiff but works...not that you'd likely want to make this a daily user. Extra international shipping charges apply.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1683 Montegrappa Cigar
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler

Pre-Owned Pens: 1683: Montegrappa: Cigar
Light up your pen collection with the most smokin' fountain pen ever made: the Montegrappa Cigar pen. This elegant pen is the size of a corona cigar, and it is made from a special celluloid designed to look like tobacco leaves with their change patterns and shades! The clip is held on by a cap band that looks like a cigar band. This forms the cap. If you unscrew the part of the cigar that you would light, it reveals the piston filler. The nib is a medium, two-tone 18k gold design. We aren't convinced this pen was ever used. If it was, it was used only once. It comes complete in a humidor shaped wooden case with a tropical scene embossed on leather for the top. The pen also includes its outer cardboard box and papers.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1682: Montegrappa: Symphony
Luxury is too crude a word for the incredible artistry of this hand-turned celluloid Montegrappa Symphony. The Italians put phenomenal detail into the sheets, waves and layers that bounce off and through the cap and barrel celluloid that took a full year to cure. All of the trim is made of sterling silver. Our preowned luxury pen appears to have been used once and put back away in its box. It includes the inner box, a hardcover booklet, papers, velvet carrying sleeve, converter and outer box. The two-toned 18k gold nib writes a smooth broad line! Nice and thick for easy all-day writing with less cramping. No one would fault you for wanting to spend all day staring at it as your turn it under a light. 13.6cm.
