Montegrappa Sophia Silver Fountain Pen – Sterling Silver, Resin
The cap of the Montegrappa Sophia Silver Fountain Pen features an image of the Rosetta Stone, an archaeological discovery of immeasurable importance. On it appears a single text written in three different language systems (hieroglyphics, demotic, and classical Greek). This enabled scholars to decipher the hieroglyphics. Other symbols of Egyptian civilization complete the decoration of the cap: samples of hieroglyphics and demotic writing, the sphinx, the pyramids and a representation of Thot, the god of knowledge to whom the Egyptians attributed the invention of writing.
The barrel of the Montegrappa Sophia Silver Fountain Pen shows an example of Greek and a detail of Raphael’s famous fresco “The School of Athens” in which the philosophers Aristotle and Plato and the mathematician and thinker Pythagoras can be seen. Some of the 4,000 characters representing all the alphabets in the world which decorate the walls of the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina are inscribed on the barrel of the Sophia Limited Edition Silver Fountain Pen.
The cap and barrel, crafted in sterling silver are decorated using the exclusive technique of burin engraving, with applications of yellow gold and rose gold which add relief and magnificence to the details.
