Montegrappa newest cult series limited edition pen, “Winter is Here” is crafted in conjunction with HBO and it is the latest design from the Italian pen brand with the ‘Game of Thrones’ imprint.
Game of Thrones Pen
The Game of Thrones pen is half pen and half objet d’art. The ancient art of lost wax casting is used which brings the inhabitants of Always Winter- the name given to the lands that lie in the furthest north of the continent of Westeros, to life in Montegrappa style.
Three-dimensional effigies of the Night King and White Walker, seemingly back-to-back, form a “superstructure” that encases the pen’s pearlescent celluloid barrel. The pen’s cap features the figure of Viserion, with the dragon’s tongue of ice protruding from its head and ingeniously forming the pen’s clip. Crystal blue enamel creates the flames encircling the base of the celluloid cap, while blue apatite gems conjure the cold eyes of the beings of the North on the barrel.
The pens are available in very limited numbers – 300 fountain pens (with 18-karat gold nib available in six sizes) and 300 rollerball pens in silver and just seven fountain pens and seven rollerball pens in 18-karat gold. But some great-looking regular edition pens are also available, in larger quantities.
Well, this is not for the first time that Montegrappa has come up with limited edition Game of Thrones pens. This collection actually follows an earlier limited edition Game of Thrones-themed collection, The Iron Throne.
It was also produced in conjunction with HBO and also part of the company’s Cult series. This collection comprised of 300 fountain pens and 300 rollerball pens in sterling silver and seven fountain pens and seven rollerball pens in 18-karat gold. The imagery included the swords of the seven kingdoms, one embellished with a fiery red ruby, surrounding the cap, while the body of the celluloid pen decorated with a sterling and gold lost wax-cast Game of Thrones décor.
