Montegrappa Mia Carissima Oversized Ebonite Mottled Brick Red Limited Edition Fountain Pen
A century ago, reservoir pens were the social media revolution of their time. While the Great War was tearing families apart, a boom in personal correspondence ensured the early years of Italy’s first fountain pen factory were prosperous. Named after the alpine soldier’s salutation (“My dearest…”), a retractable nib and ebonite body recall an age when functionality and craftsmanship were inseparable.
VINTAGE MEETS MODERN
The pleasure we derive from vintage objects is so often tempered by erratic performance. The Mia Carissima Ebonite not only recaptures the materials and form of early-period fountain pens, but also their functionality. Its nostalgic eyedropper fill system has been perfected with the help of modern technology: a specially developed housing prevents air bubbles and leaks. The only ‘drawback’ you’ll notice is the sweet sensation of its 18k gold safety nib gently retracting.
