Montegrappa Limited Edition Thoth Fountain Pen
The Montegrappa Limited Edition Thoth Fountain Pen is imbued with the design language of ancient Egypt. Even the pen’s shape, though as slim as a pen needs be, possesses curves recalling a mummy’s sarcophagus, the decoration emphasising the likeness.
So, too, do the patterns tell a story, the burnished laser-cut engravings combining top recreate the atmosphere of highly-adorned walls in an Egyptian throne room. Realised in Charcoal Black celluloid, with contrasting elements in either and Sterling Silver or 18k Gold trim, the Thoth pen bears the god’s ibis head on the top of the cap, segueing into a pocket clip. Hieroglyphics encircle the bottom of the cap, while motifs inspired by period Egyptian clothing may be found on the upper part.
On the bottom of the barrel is the symbol of Thoth, a stylised ibis, while the barrel is engraved with the inscriptions of one of Thoth’s emerald tablets, believed to be written in the ancient language of Atlantis. Thoth’s ibis symbol also appears on the 18K gold nib of this beautiful piston-fed fountain pen.
Issued as both fountain and rollerball, the Thoth collection is limited to 365 Fountain pens in Sterling Silver and 365 Rollerball pens in Sterling Silver to represent Thoth’s creation of the calendar, with 5 Fountain pens in Solid 18K Gold and 5 Rollerball pens in Solid 18K Gold to recall the five days he won from the Moon.
