Montegrappa Blue Caduceus Fountain Pen
A profession rightly raised to stardom, thanks to successful shows such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and the like, deserves to be further celebrated with a new version of the best-selling CADUCEUS pen collection in Blue. As a means to convey best wishes and good health, the Fortuna Caduceus says it universally.
Regarded as beautiful because of what it represents, the Caduceus is also an aesthetic totem thanks to its actual shape and structure. It is formed of a rod embraced by two intertwined snakes and wings, and the symbolism of these two components has inspired many interpretations, especially the notion of resurrection and healing, as symbolized by snakes shedding their skins, while the wings represent the “lift” when one is healed. Caduceus is also the staff carried by Hermes, the messenger of the gods, serving as a symbol of peace, with the wings representing his speed. Among ancient Greeks and Romans, it became the badge of heralds and ambassadors, signifying their inviolability. In modern times, it has grown beyond the use by the US Medical Corps to represent physicians and even pharmacies.
The Montegrappa Fortuna Blue Caduceus Fountain Pen’s nib is inscribed with the Montegrappa filigree pattern. The cap top is embellished with the 1912 logo. The pen is offered as a fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint pen. Cartridge/converter fill.
