Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing writing implements in the same historic building on the bank of the River Brenta. Founded as a “Manifattura pennini d’oro e penne stilografiche” (“Manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens”) during a turbulent period in Italy’s history, Montegrappa was a by-product of the region’s social history. Montegrappa pens have played their part in history, for signing documents during key moments in the 20th Century. Highly desirable pens such as the coveted Dragon have attracted and inspired notable collectors, which include heads-of-state, popes, royalty, actors, musicians, artists, sportsmen, top models, writers and celebrities.
An elegant writing instrument to pay homage to 'Ol' Blue Eyes'.
To pay tribute to Frank Sinatra, Montegrappa has fashioned pens that, from cap to tip, are imbued with several distinctive elements that signify Sinatra’s remarkable life and career. At the working end, the tip of each pen bears a musical staff and a G-clef. The barrels and caps of each pen are finished to resemble the fabric of a sharp pin-striped suit, while the ends of each cap are engraved with the fedora logo used today by Frank Sinatra Enterprises to identify authorized Sinatra items and suggestive of the signature style of hat that Sinatra wore and made famous.
The fountain pens in the series have blue accents in a nod to “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” while the rollerball pens bear orange accents reflective of Sinatra’s favorite color. The pocket clips for each pen are carved in the shape of a classic microphone. Limited Edition of 1915!
