Limited Edition Montegrappa York Roses Fountain Pen in Silver
The inspiration for this collection was the 30 years War of the Roses between the House of York and the House of Lancaster for the throne of England. This period in English history, circa 1455 - 1487, is named after the heraldic badges of the two apposing royal houses. The white rose of the House of York and the red rose of the House of Lancaster. Roses are therefore the main decorative feature of the limited edition Montegrappa York and Lancaster fountain pens, appearing on the top of the pocket clips and along the caps and barrels in shallow silver relief.
This example of the Montegrappa York Roses fountain pen is manufactured in silver (.925) and fitted with an 18k gold nib with platinum highlights, engraved with Greek key style decoration. They were available in four nib grades, EF, F, M and B. This pen is supplied in a wood and silver gift box with an information booklet, polishing cloth and cloth pen pouch, all contained in an outer protective card sleeve.
This now very rare unmarked example from 1994 is number 42/1200, produced in silver, and fitted with a broad nib. The pen is a cartridge converter and the pen cap can be screwed onto the barrel when in use if desired. The cap, barrel and nib section are fully assay marked.
