Montegrappa Duchess Of York Ocean (Mediterranean Blue) Limited Edition Fountain Pen
To give you an idea on size, although these have #6 nibs, they are oversized pens. They are larger than the Montegrappa Extra.
The moods of nature provide the inspiration for a limited-edition collection of exclusive fountain pens created by Montegrappa in collaboration with Sarah, Duchess of York. Pretty, Sterling Silver friezes fuse with effervescent celluloid in a silhouette abundant with lively feminine charm.
Montegrappa has collaborated with the celebrity and humanitarian Sarah, Duchess of York, on a special collection of writing instruments inspired by her love of nature. Three shades of gleaming celluloid evoke the moods of Ocean, Forest and Garden.
Duchess is a refined, slimline fountain pen brimming with femininity. Royal standards merit the highest levels of craftsmanship and Montegrappa does not disappoint, applying delicate Italian artisanship to a potpourri of luxurious materials.
Celluloid’s effervescent colours are brilliant and glamourous, yet retain organic nuances evocative of the beauty found in nature. Supple, with unrivalled tactile qualities, this coveted material has become increasingly rare.
Trims of 0.925 sterling silver contain intricate engravings specific to each model. Friezes comprising scallop shells (Ocean), mulberry bushes (Forest) and chrysanthemums (Garden) decorate the upper and lower capbands of each piece in the collection.
Each colour exists in a limited edition of only 100 pieces. Precision nibs made from 18K gold feature a custom engraving of Sarah, Duchess of York’s personal monogram – also reproduced on the finial disc and deluxe portfolio packaging.
The Duchess of York’s own nature photography features on a set of 12 postcards supplied in a unique portfolio presentation case. Each carries a personalised caption and selected quote.
