Montegrappa Tulip for Team Fox Ballpoint Pen
Pens against Parkinson’s
The sculpted pocket clip of the Montegrappa Tulip for Team Fox Ballpoint Pen is inspired by the global symbol of Parkinson’s disease awareness and designed by Australian fine artist, Timothy John. An estimated six million people living with Parkinson’s Disease, formulating even the simplest thoughts can be an arduous, painful ritual. This Solidarity Edition helps fund research for a cure. It’s built to go wherever you go, with a sculpted tulip pocket clip to pronounce love and compassion as your guides.
The global symbol of Parkinson’s awareness is the centrepiece of a design championed and created by fine artist, Timothy John. Recently diagnosed with the debilitating disease, Timothy inspired us to seek out the collaboration of an organisation that Bloomberg cited as “the fulcrum on which Parkinson’s research pivots.” Proceeds from every purchase will help fund the Michael J. Fox Foundation and its efforts to accelerate the search for a cure.
