The Ducale brand appears for the first time in 1930s to mark the high-end pens of the Elmo line. The name drew inspiration from the famous Doge's Palace, one of the symbols of the city of Venice and Venetian Gothic masterpiece, located in the monumental Piazza San Marco, between the Piazzetta and the Pier. After eighty years, Montegrappa is proud to relaunch the glorious Ducale collection. Fountain pen, ballpoint and roller Ball in strictly black, with a choice of palladium or rose gold plated trim, or pearly Emperador Brown resin available with rose gold plated trim. A generously-sized pen, perfectly balanced, which is a joy to hold and a pleasure to write with.
