“The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
Montegrappa celebrates the life of the universally-admired performer with its “Icons Tribute To Elvis Presley,” licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, in honor of the man who transformed popular music at the midpoint of the 20th century and became one of the most important figures in the history of recorded music.
Four models will represent important phases in Elvis’ career from 1956 to 1977. Each pen possesses a resin body in a color suggestive of the each era, with sterling silver or vermeil accents. The fountain pen nibs are engraved with the full-height profile of Elvis at the microphone. Other details unique to each pen and the packaging also denote the specific stage of Elvis’ career.
Black characterizes 1968 – the year of the Elvis “comeback special”, in which he wore the famous black leather outfit. The pocket clip represents the zipper on the jacket, while the decorations at the bottom of the barrel were inspired by other details of Elvis’ black leather attire. For this model, 500 fountain pens, 500 roller balls and 968 ballpoint pens have been created. For the gold version, 11 fountain pens, 11 rollerballs and 11 ballpoint pens equal a total of 33, his age in 1968.
