MONTEGRAPPA ALEXANDER HAMILTON CREAM ROLLERBALL LIMITED EDITION


Alexander Hamilton has long been considered to be one of the foremost of American Founding Fathers. Born in 1757 on the Caribbean island of Nevis, he moved to New York as a teen to further his education. Hamilton took an important role in the Revolutionary War as senior aide to General George Washington, and after the war was elected as a representative to the Congress of Confederation.

Hamilton was known for being in favor of a stronger central government. He was instrumental in influencing Congress to issue a call for the Philadelphia Convention in order to create a new constitution. One of Hamilton’s most important contributions was the primary authorship of the Federalist Papers, considered to be an indispensable document for interpretation of the US Constitution.

Hamilton was a nationalist who emphasized strong central government and successfully argued that the powers of the Constitution provided legal authority to fund the national debt. Hamilton served as the first Secretary of the Treasury and was instrumental in the creationof the US Mint. He was also fundamental in the development of friendly trade relations with England, and strongly supported the creation of a government backed Bank of the United States.



Hamilton continued political, legal and business activities in New York City, and was active in ending the legality of the international slave trade. Hamilton opposed the election of Aaron Burr in 1804. Burr took offense and challenged him to a duel, mortally wounding Hamilton.

The Montegrappa Hamilton Edition is an exquisite example of the pen maker’s art. Bringing together the finest Italian craftsmanship with a unique design featuring precious metal accents and two versions of striking artwork displayed on cap and barrel.



The cap top of the Alexander Hamilton edition representthe torch of the Statue of Liberty, the die-cast ornamental decoration resembling the flames of the torch, with 18Kgold plating signifying fire. The signature clip and cap band of the Hamilton edition were also inspired by the design created by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi in 1870.The torch is a symbol of enlightenment. The Statue of Liberty's torch lights the way to freedom showing us the path to Liberty. Even the Statue's official name represents her most important symbol "Liberty Enlightening the World".

Limited to 177 fountain pens and 177 rollerballs in each version, the Montegrappa Hamilton features depictions of Hamilton on the barrel, one a hand painted version of John Trumbull’s 1805 portrait, the other based on the portrait introduced in 1928 for use on the US $10 note. The caps feature a depiction of Hamilton’s writing.



The fountain pen is fitted with a classic 18K solid gold nib featuring the initials “AH” engraved on its surface, and the rollerball a section crafted of sterling silver. Each Hamilton Edition features detailed sculptural elements in sterling silver at cap top and barrel end as well as an intricate cap band. All are set off with rich vermeil accents. The Hamilton Edition is topped with a gleaming rose gold representation of the flame from atop the torch of Statue of Liberty.

The Montegrappa Hamilton Edition is a striking and elegant celebration of one of America’s most instrumental historical figures as well as a one of a kind opportunity to own a magnificent fine writing instrument.
