Overview 

Released in 1995 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, Montegrappa released a limited edition run of 3500 Romeo & Juliet pens in chased sterling silver.

The pens are an example of a superb standard of silver work, with highly detailed light relief chasing throughout and a silver casting of Romeo himself on the clip. 

The fountain pen carries an 18k Gold medium nib, with greek key motif set to a handmade ebonite feed.

The fountain pen and ballpoint pen are both in near mint condition.

The box set includes, presentation case, polishing cloth, Montegrappa 1912 booklet, cartridges, ink converter, and Montegrappa instructions. Please note the box is not an original. 

 

Servicing

The pen has been given a gentle polish and the nib has been tested, tuned and cleaned. The pens both come ready to write. 

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks splits or engravings.

Both the cartouches are blank should you wish to engrave them

There are only the lightest signs of use to these pens, they are near perfect examples. 

 

Writing Style

The 18k Nib is an absolute pleasure to write with, it is mediumn, with a little springyness to it. A very responsive pen, the feed keeps up well and offers a nice wet line. A superb piece of craftsmanship from Montegrappa, truly a beauty of a writer.
