LOS ANGELES, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Montegrappa, Italy's most revered manufacturer of fine writing instruments, today announced the availability of the Mount Rushmore pen from the iconic Cosmopolitan collection which has been resurrected from the company's historic archives. First premiering during Baselworld, the world's largest and most important event in the watch and jewelry sector which is held annually in Basel, Switzerland, Montegrappa revived the Cosmopolitan which was a much-loved collection from the 1990's.
The Cosmopolitan collection features a sterling silver pen with resin accents and intricate details which form in bas relief to serve as the medium to communicate the spirit of five different cultures. The series will be offered as a special edition of 500 fountain pens, 500 roller ball pens, and 50 of each fashioned in gold and will feature the following distinct offerings: Arabian Animals of Desert; Bohemian Paris; Victorian England; and China's Ancient Gods.
The collection also honors the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. This magnificent sculpture is carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota. Created by Gutzon Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
A popular destination, especially during the summer months, Mount Rushmore attracts approximately two million visitors annually. This October marks the 70th anniversary of the completion of this historic monument and is the perfect occasion to invest in Montegrappa's Mount Rushmore fine writing instrument from the Cosmopolitan collection which honors this legendary work of art and American treasure.
