Homage to the four families
With its epic storylines of treachery and nobility, family and honor, ambition and love, and death and survival, Game of Thrones has captured the imagination of fans everywhere making it one of the most popular shows of modern television.
Montegrappa pays homage to the show with a series of writing instruments that convey the grandeur of this most remarkable saga. The Game of Thrones collection of writing instruments represents of each of the four key families: Stark, Baratheon, Lannister and Targaryen. Each is available as a fountain pen, rollerball and a ballpoint pen. Each pen individualized for the family it represents through sigils and emblems representative of the clan.
House Baratheon: “Colored a sombre charcoal, but accented in contrasting yellow gold, the House Baratheon pen features a stag’s head for its pocket clip, with a stag rampant on the cap’s top, above the motto, “Our Is The Fury”. A fleur-de-lis pattern decorates the cap.”
House Lannister: “For House Lannister, a regal red accented in contrasting yellow gold is the dominant color. The House Lannister pen features a lion’s head for its pocket clip, and a lion rampant on the cap’s top, above the motto, ‘Hear Me Roar’. A floral pattern, reminiscent of the Tudor Rose, decorates the cap.”
House Stark: “With House Stark’s northern origins, the colour chosen for the family’s pen is a silvery-white, accented in palladium, conveying winter. The cap is patterned with a runic symbol reminiscent of Norse artistry. A direwolf’s head forms the pocket clip, while the top of the cap shows the direwolf’s profile, above the motto, ‘Winter Is Coming.’”
House Targaryen: “Only a fiery, metallic red against a coal-black background could represent House Targaryen. Naturally, a dragon’s head forms the pocket clip, while a dragon coils above the legend, ‘Fire and Blood’, on the cap’s top. A filigree pattern graces the cap.”
The barrels and caps of the pens are made with colourful lacquered surfaces, while the trims are fashioned of palladium, 18k gold or bronze-plate, with “Game of Thrones” engraved on the cap ring. The nibs of the fountain pens are formed in stainless steel, and are garnished with a sword. They are are available in the writing grades: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad. The fountain pen is both cartridge and converter-fed.
Montegrappa’s Game of Thrones pens are housed in a double box consisting of a rich, black outer carton bearing each family’s symbol. The inner box is covered in material evoking the styles of the historical period that inspired Game of Thrones, with sigils and patterns relevant to the four families.
