Will have thought on the new Montegrappa Monopoly. You can already imagine it displayed in his mansion just to show another sick collectable item he has acquired. We’re not judging… we love the more eccentric and the more low profile personalities.

But this Limited Edition Pen that also features the incredible Board Game made of Wood with Sterling Silver icons is surely going to be a Hit for everyone that sees it displayed in your space.

Limited Edition priced depending on the Version at around €4300

The Purist

Cannot not go for the Namiki Yukari Royale. It’s the Holy Grail for a lot of passionate collectors or for people that enter the beautiful World of Fine Writing Instruments. We call this often “Sophisticated Simplicity” as it’s a complex hand made Urushi process, but when you look at it the clear proportions and lines are so simple that it’s almost embarassing. And that is exactly what makes it an Oeuvre d’Art. The Namiki Yukari Royale is available in Black Urushi or Vermillion Urushi and runs for ca. €1600

Right now not the easiest Fountain Pen to get due to the large request, but make sure to reserve one at your local dealer.
