Description:
Montegrappa created its Bruce Lee Dragon pen in 2010 in honor of the martial arts legend's 70th birthday. The original design, in red celluloid overlaid with sterling silver, was adapted from Montegrappa's successful Dragon design, and quickly achieved iconic status in the pen world. This special "Bamboo" version was produced in an ultra-limited edition of two fountain pens and two rollerballs. These rare variants were never available through regular retail channels and were sold privately by Montegrappa to their most exclusive clientele. They are among the rarest limited editions ever made. PBA sold one of the two rollerballs in July, 2018; the present lot is the last remaining example of this pen on the market.
 
Black celluloid with silver-grey veins, sterling silver dragon overlay, sapphire eyes, sapphires set into captop Yin-Yang emblem. Outer box, inner box, black lacquered wood display box lined with brocaded red silk, velvet drawstring bag, brocaded red silk pen sleeve, booklet, certificate (numbered "PdA", for "Prova d'Autore" or Artist's Proof). Limited Edition: One of two rollerball examples made; this one is numbered "PdA". Excellent condition, not inked.
