MONTEGRAPPA ALEXANDER HAMILTON LIMITED EDITION SERIES


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.


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.

Features


  • Lorena Straffi was born in Bologna, Italy, and her family members are all Auto enthusiasts. Her father worked for Lamborghini, and her brother works for Ferrari. Although Lorena followed the family’s love for the Motorsport, her passion took a different direction. She formed her own company in Bologna, and her work received awards and recognition for her dynamic style of artwork portraying motorsport themes as well as fantasy art themes.

    Lorena's painting techniques range from the most traditional to the modern, including the paint with enamels and the modern cold lacquer. Whereas some artwork on products is claimed as being 'hand painted', they are not 100% hand painted! This is where Lorena's gift of being a highly skilled artist comes to life; every piece she paints is entirely 100% hand-painted, from preparation to the final polishing is all done by her hand. Lorena's finished artwork is protected by having multiple layers of a highly durable lacquer in a polished finish, giving a lifetime protection and keeping the colors bright and crisp.

    Her work is seen on canvas and artist boards as well as a variety of surfaces. Large companies have recognized the potential of her hand painted artwork on their products, and soon orders were coming in from the likes of Ducati Motorcycles, Colnago bicycles for the Ferrari Colnago collaboration, Maserati, Malaguti scooters, luxury writing instruments created by Conway Stewart, Tibaldi, Montegrappa, Zippo lighters, and many others. The successful partnerships between her and her clients have continued to last for many years.

    Lorena's works are exhibited at Harrods Warehouses in London, the Hermitage of St. Petersburg, the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, Germany, and the Tate Modern Museum in London.

    She has painted commissions for famous figures such as Naomi Campbell, Muhammad Ali Foundation, and the Bahrain Prime Minister.

Reviewer: Charles Care from London, England  
I love the connection Montegrappa makes with American history and Alexander Hamilton. It is amazing how the artisans from Bassano del Grappa can paint such a wonderful depiction by hand right onto the barrel and cap of the pen! This is definitely a unique piece of art. It is a great writer too!
