Gioia Alleria Tramonto Sand
The Alleria Tramonto is a handmade fountain pen turned from precious resin, with marbled golden finish and rhodium plated trim which aptly convey the name 'Sunset Sand':
'The spotted effect refers to the last evenings of summer, when the clear and clear sky begins to fill with small clouds that chase each other.
The pen is a full sized modern classic, measuring in at 142mm capped. The pen has been turned from Italian precious resin and fills via a smooth piston filler. The barrel threads are unique, being at the foot of the grip section, they facilitate a tight seal and a graceful capping experience.
The well sprung rhodium plated clip is made using an ancient goldsmith’s process called “lost wax casting”. The cap and the barrel together have five trim rings that confer a neo-classic look. The result: a fountain pen with a modern silhouette and a strikingly attractive colour combination that smacks of Italian craftsmanship.
The difference between the Tramonto model and the Tramonto Sand Model is subtle (photo 5), the Tramonto sand having a matt black finish to its cap and piston knob whereas the Tramonto has a high gloss black finish.
The Tramonto Sand is available in two trim finishes: Silver Trim (ST) & Gold Trim (GT)
