Montegrappa Teacher’s Ballpoint Pen
An Apple for the Teacher, Fruit of appreciation
Montegrappa Teacher’s Ballpoint Pen is a great pen for those who give so much to our children’s futures, gestures of appreciation should be more than token. Inside a book-shaped case, a message of hope and a symbol of gratitude are ingrained into a writing instrument designed to perform lasting work. A gift that keeps on giving…for the best teacher in the world.
Though the apple’s use as a token of appreciation can be traced back to 18th century Scandinavia, it was Bing Crosby and Connie Boswell who sparked its widespread adoption with their 1939 hit, ‘An Apple for the Teacher’. Over the decades, apples have become increasingly symbolic – with apple-themed fare taking the place of the humble, crispy fruit.
For those moments when a teacher is working with chalk rather than ink, an apple-shaped enamel pin is included in the package to remind them that they’re still #1.
Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing high quality writing instruments in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa, North East of Italy. Being the first Italian manufacturer of superior writing instruments, Montegrappa pens was dedicated to more than a century of peerless craftsmanship that defines an Italian brand, known around the world for its creativity and style.

Illustrious users and collectors are known as Montegrappisti who include sylvester Stallone, Rudolf Schenker of Scorpions, Eva Longoria, Muhammad Ali, zinedine zidane and many others.
The skills and vision which have produced the finest pens have been applied to other accoutrements that enhance one’s life which range from Montegrappa Cult Collections, Icons Collection, leather accessories and time pieces that delight the user.
Appealing to the senses, Montegrappa has also introduced new collections to speak on elements of human nature that drive one to greater heights: Emozione, Passione and Desiderio are pens that reach into one’s soul.
