Well friends of Italian pens and wonderful celluloid creations, we have another very limited release Montegrappa Extra fountain pen on our hands! Not 1 new pen, but 7 new celluloid Extra’s being sold exclusively through Chatterley pens (no affiliation) as the Colori Del Mare collection.
The pens are themed of course, Colours of the Sea, with a donation being made to a 4 Ocean with each pen. The nib on the pens are a the usual huge, #8 size bi-colour 18kt found on all Extra’s, but this one has a seahorse engraving that looks incredible! A bit of the marketing blurb below:
In collaboration with Chatterley Luxuries, the Extra family of classic pens will be presented in new colours with a marine ambiance. Each pen is identified by the image of a seahorse engraved on the custom 18k gold nib, with trim in sterling silver. Colori del Mare describes a vibrant collection of special Fountain Pens that utilizes Montegrappa’s treasure trove of natural celluloids in a wide range of hues, tones and colours. Each type of celluloid employed in the range has been hand-selected for its appropriateness in paying homage to the glories of the oceans.
Seven colours have been chosen representing the 7 seas, to be offered in limited editions of 15 examples per colour, with the turquoise version – The Sea – represented by 27 pens. Each pen is hand-engraved with the edition number, with symbolic wave patterns engraved on the ring.
I’ve got myself lined up for Sea Turtle, and I will be posting some shots and maybe a mini review on the blog soon after I get it. I also have some more Montegrappa surprises and eye candy on the way that I will review, so keep an eye out!
What do you think of the new Colori del Mare colection? Anyone else picking one of these up?
