Montegrappa Ancient Thoth Rollerball
Joining Montegrappa’s Ancient Civilizations series, the limited edition Thoth collection of writing instruments enjoys a special presence. Thoth was the Egyptian deity, among many other roles, which was accredited for the invention of the alphabet and writing. There can be no more appropriate a figure to honor with a family of fine pens.
The Thoth writing instruments are imbued with the design language of ancient Egypt. Even the pen’s shape, though as slim as a pen to needs be, possesses curves recalling a mummy’s sarcophagus, with the decoration emphasizing the likeness. So, too, do the patterns tell a story, the burnished laser-cut engravings recreate the atmosphere of highly-adorned walls in an Egyptian throne room. Realized in Charcoal Black celluloid, with contrasting elements in Sterling Silver, the Thoth pen bears the god's ibis head on the top of the cap, segueing into a pocket clip.
Hieroglyphics encircle the bottom of the cap, while motifs inspired by period Egyptian clothing may be found on the upper body. On the bottom of the barrel is the symbol of Thoth, a stylized ibis, while the barrel is engraved with the inscriptions of one of Thoth’s emerald tablets, believed to be written in the ancient language of Atlantis. The Thoth collection is limited to 365 Fountain pens and Rollerballs.
