MONTEGRAPPA: Dragon Mediterranean Blue Celluloid and 18K Yellow Gold with Blue Sapphires Fountain Pen *ARTIST'S PROOF*
Created by Montegrappa's most elite artisans for display at the company's corporate headquarters, this unique pen in marbled blue celluloid, 18K solid gold and blue sapphires is a brilliant exercise in pure aesthetics. The only one created, its existence has been a closely-guarded secret, and its appearance in this catalogue marks its public debut. It is perhaps the most exclusive Montegrappa pen currently on the marketplace.

The hand-finished 18K solid yellow gold dragon overlay weighs 106 g., and is set with 590 sapphires. The eyes are set with four rubies. The pen is in pristine condition.

Fine 18K two-tone gold nib. Outer box, lacquered hardwood display box, booklet. Year of production: 2005 (to observe the 10th anniversary of the original Montegrappa Dragon pen). Limited Edition: PdA ("Prova d'Autore"); the only one made.

Provenance: From the collection of Montegrappa's top worldwide buyer, whose credibility with Montegrappa gained him access to exclusive treasures from the company's private private vaults.
