Montegrappa Icons: Elvis Presley Series
Montegrappa celebrates the life of the universally-admired performer with its “Icons Tribute To Elvis Presley,” licensed by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
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.
Aqua - Silver and Resin
Aqua represents the 1950s, a hue that would have been found on two-tone automobiles and early electric guitars. The pocket clip recalls a period jukebox. As 1956 was the year that Elvis “hit the big time,” the edition consists of 500 fountain pens, 500 roller balls and 956 ballpoint pens.
Las Vegas: White - Vermeil and Resin
White is the color of the ultimate model in the quartet, defining Elvis in 1973 – the year of the ground-breaking “Aloha From Hawaii” broadcast, transmitted live via satellite on 14 January 1973 and seen by an estimated one billion people. This period was also noted for Elvis’ Las Vegas appearances, and his signature jumpsuits with gem-stone accents. The poket clip recalls the message to his closely-knit band of friends: “TCB,” for “Taking Care of Business.”
