Harry Potter: Hogwarts LE, befitting tribute to an immortal legacy
Harry Potter. Yes, that’s it, it is the introduction to this blog
As I write this blog wearing Harry Potter’s infamous-mark-on-the-forehead-and-round-spectacles pyjamas and a Deathly Hallows T-shirt, I can sense the magic of the wizarding world around me. In 1997, J. K. Rowling enchanted the world with her first book ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ of the iconic series. Ever since, we have been under the spell of Harry Potter, fascinated by the extraordinary adventures set within a whole new world, within a world.
Inspired by the famous saying, “The wand chooses the wizard, Mr Potter”, my Sir once told me, “Similarly, the pen chooses its owner.” Each fountain pen is unique like a wand, one that only responds truthfully to its master. Montegrappa has created the perfect ‘wand’ for you to fight literary battles now. A stunning writing instrument that parallels the magnificent world of magic, needless to say, Montegrappa combines traditional nib science with modern innovations for this one.
The Harry Potter LE is created by Montegrappa in partnership with Warner Bros Consumer Products. The Italian manufactory is home to some of the world’s finest extravagant collectible pens. Giuseppe Aquila, the brand’s CEO and creative artillery just has one word for the Wizarding World – Imagination. He says, “Ever since the introduction of the Harry Potter books and films, we have been dreaming of realising this project. Minds that love exploring new worlds are very often the same ones that love creating with pen and paper.”
The first part of the series with the Philosopher’s Stone has inspired the making of the Harry Potter: Hogwarts L.E. The flagship model in sterling silver is limited to 142 desirable pieces (fountain pens and roller balls each) in semblance to Hogwarts’ 142 staircases. The 18K Gold category has seven fountain pens and four roller balls that represent the school’s seven floors and four houses. The makers have carefully preserved even the tiniest of details to pay perfect homage to this immortal legacy. Just like an artist fosters together his / her creation over time with perfection, this pen has been crafted using world-class materials and techniques.
The pen is crowned with a red cabochon to match the immortality of the Sorcerer’s Stone. On each side of the barrel, using intricate artisanal techniques like wax casting and gold vermeil, the Hogwarts coat of arms is recreated. The crests of four Hogwarts houses – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin are imprinted with their respective house colours. Their mottos and banners encircle the blind cap precisely. This engraving is realized through hand-applied enamel and guilloche techniques. The Fountain Pen Edition features a custom 18K Gold nib in the standard sizes of EF, F, M, B, Double Broad, and Stub 1.1. The pen ensures top-notch writing with an ebonite feed and Montegrappa’s exquisite piston-fill mechanism.
A pen that wields great power, encourages courageous writing and stands noble in this immoral world. A pen that promotes creativity and lends individuality to its master. A pen that is as loyal, dedicated, and honest as a wand to its holder. A pen designed for the ambitious and determined who can make the most of any situation. That’s Harry Potter: Hogwarts LE for you, truly representing Hogwarts and its very essence, the four Houses – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.
If anyone knows about conceptualizing popular culture into the finest writing instruments, it is Montegrappa. For a century, the colossal pen-maker has bestowed the world with such supremely fashioned paraphernalia. The creator forms a Bermuda triangle of luxurious materials, high craftsmanship, and unrivalled writing pleasure to drive in celebrated collectors and dignitaries.
The Harry Potter Hogwarts LE spearheads a glorious collection of inks and pens cases with a series of open-edition steel and brass designs inspired by the Four Vintage Houses.
