Montegrappa Ducale Fountain Pen in Rose Gold & Black. Honouring the famous palace on Venice's Piazza San Marco, the Ducale pen collection represents a perfect balance of power and poise. It first appeared in the 1930s to mark the high-end pens of the Elmo line. The name drew inspiration from the famous Doge's Palace, one of the symbols of the city of Venice. Generous proportions convey authority and substance, both in the hand and on the page. Clean lines, refined finishing and reliable performance make Ducale Montegrappa's best travelled pen, preferred by a broad base of ambitious users who refuse to simply be part of the scenery. Style is temporary. Class is permanent.
The Montegrappa Ducale is made from a lustrous black resin with stunning 18-Karat Rose Gold trim. The pen has a screw cap, which can be posted, and is engraved with "Montegrappa" around the top. The pen cap also features Montegrappa elegantly curved signature pen clip. This is a large pen that is perfectly balanced for writing comfort.
