“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.
Green marks 1958, the year Elvis was drafted into the US Army. Reminiscent of the period when Elvis was in uniform, the pen features a pocket clip with the stripes to show his rank of ser.geant. For this model, 500 fountain pens, 500 roller balls and 958 ballpoint pens have been issued. The gold edition numbers 11 fountain pens, 11 rollerballs and 11 ballpoint pens, the tally of 33 equaling the number of films he made: 31 features and two live documentaries.
