Finish: Black Lacquer
Montegrappa celebrated one of the most exciting and unique festivals in the world, Mexico’s famed Day of the Dead, or ‘Día de Muertos’, with a new handcrafted Fortuna collection. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to remember those who have passed. To create the very special pens, Montegrappa designers make deep-cut engravings on the cap and barrel that are filled in with pearlized enamels. The main image is a skull – the famous motif of the celebration – offered in blue. Each pen is unique: the enamel is painted entirely by hand; each color is applied separately and must dry completely before a new layer can be added. The black resin Fortuna’s modern silhouette is enhanced with ruthenium-plated fittings including the rolling ring clip.
