Venetia - New Colours Available - Vintage Conifer, Plume Agate & Havana Amber




A new name was not the only thing to distinguish Venetian writing instruments made in the late 1920s. During resurgent years for artisanal industry, daring industrial design typified many of the region’s finest exports. In this archival reissue, subtle flourishes reveal traces of local enterprise and pride. Skilled machining and frugal use of gold-plated brass elevate form without compromising on function.

Throughout history, artistic flair and tenacious work ethic have defined the fortunes of Venice. With its confident 1920s shaping, Venetia provides a snapshot of a region in rebirth.


Even in a time of rampant demand, Venetian instinct for artistry was hard to supress. Precision lathing of every component showcases the remarkable skill and discipline of our early-era manufactory.

Our 1928 ‘touring’ logo was introduced to denominate origin on Italy’s most sought-after pens. Diamond engraving reproduces the first recorded use of the Montegrappa name.
