Not everyone gets the honour and recognition of becoming one of the “Genio Creativo” of Montegrappa Collection. Salvador Dali does. The Spanish genius joins Antonio Stradivari and Amadeo Modigliani, in this collection of limited edition fountain pens. The high quality and exquisite design makes of this Montegrappa Fountain Pen Salvador Dali Limited Edition a great tribute of Dali’s technical skills and unique visual sense. Proof of this is the support provided by the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, which supervised and licensed this project.
The unique design of this Montegrappa Fountain Pen Salvador Dali Limited Edition includes an elephant, used by Dali as a way of representing the strength and protection he wanted to transmit to the love of his life, Gala. The long legs are used as an expression of the patience he had every time she didn’t allow him to visit her. A surrealistic way of expressing love, which will permeate each one of your writings.
On the Montegrappa Fountain Pen Salvador Dali Limited Edition, the elephant embraces a barrel of Mediterranean blue celluloid for the silver edition, or in malachite green for the solid gold version, the same way that the cap embraces the whole body of the pen. When the pen is opened, a quote from the autobiography, The Secret Life of Salvador Dali, is showed on the inner barrel.
This Limited Edition consists of only 1000 sterling silver fountain pens (with a 18K solid gold nib and a piston filler) and 989 rollerball pens, denoting 1989 – the year that Dali died. 19 solid gold rollerball pens and 61 fountain pens will represent the year that the The Space Elephant was created. The pens are packaged, in an egg-shaped container, in recognition of another Daliesque surreal image. Continuing the hidden symbolism and surreal ways of showing his feelings, for the artist the egg symbolised hope and love.
