The dragon became the Chinese national symbol in 1912. Montegrappa started its production of writing instruments precisely the same year. The limited edition of 1995 celebrates the encounter of these two cultures, the Orient and the Occident. A fountain pen born under the sign of the dragon, a fascinating symbolic figure, with a mysterious meaning: a ferocious girl-eating predator for the western imagination, a well-inclined spirit present everywhere for the oriental iconography. Interpreted by the skilled hands of the artist Federico Monti, the image of the dragon lives on the body and on the cap of this Montegrappa limited edition, transforming a mere writing object into a work of art, inspired from myths and legends.

Montegrappa had produced the Dragon in 1,912 pieces to celebrate its foundation year. It came in black mother-of-pearl celluloid and sterling silver. Only 100 fountain pens were in 18K gold. The fountain pen has a piston filling system.

Penporium is offering for sale a set of brand new Solid Gold and Sterling Silver Dragon fountain pens - both mounted with Medium nibs.
