The Full Story
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 pen is in near mint condition and shows minimal signs of use. The silverwork is a sight to behold and the pen is beautifully balanced giving the writer a sense of gravitas and composure on the page.
