Montegrappa hand-painting Snake pen

Montegrappa unveiled an exclusive version of Snake Pen 2013 for connoisseurs of hand-painting. Every pen in the Snake Limited Edition is adorned with stunning die-cast overlays, of a quality and creativity familiar to those who have examined the Dragon and Chaos pens that are so highly prized by enthusiasts. The metalwork encircles a barrel in a deep red-brown hue, made of a special pearlised resin called ‘Pietra’, which is Italian for ‘stone’. The clip terminates in the signature Montegrappa ball to facilitate easy ingress and egress from one’s pocket. For the Snake, it is fashioned from the semi-precious stone Carnelian, its colour matching the cap and barrel.

The hand-painted collection is available as a limited edition of only 88 silver fountain pens and 88 silver rollerball pens.

For this special edition, the overlays are hand-painted with the exclusive Limoges painting technique, individually decorated by Montegrappa’s in-house artist, Lorena Straffi. This artistry brings to life, with unparalleled visual intensity, the serpent honoured by the pen itself.

By applying specialised enamels, Lorena Straffi, is able to create an effect which allows light to penetrate the material and reflect off the surface. This gives the painted surface its unique effect, sometimes known as the ‘wet effect’. The enamel is baked to give a protective and durable finish. It produces a pen of singular beauty.
