The greatest fantasy epic of all time is the subject of the newest addition to Montegrappa’s Cult Series: home to the world’s most magical writing instruments. The rich universe of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is explored in intricate detail, with more than twenty, expertly crafted motifs woven into its design. With a replica of the iconic, golden One Ring as its centerpiece, The Lord of the Rings Limited Edition offers much to tempt aficionados of Middle-earth.
“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
One pen to rule them all. Our tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved trilogy is made with a level of craftsmanship to rival the great Elven-smiths of Eregion. The Lord of the Rings Limited Edition is a magical creation of lostwax casting that celebrates imagination, creativity and heroic journeys at their finest.
Tolkien’s epic fantasy is one of the most successful works of fiction in history, with more than 150 million copies sold, and close to $3 billion in global box-office earnings. Several major readers’ polls rank The Lord of the Rings as the best-loved book of all time. Enjoyed by readers young and old, it is celebrated in both literary and pop culture circles.
Armaments and regalia belonging to the Fellowship of the Ring make up the elements of the barrel. Gandalf’s staff, Aragorn’s sword and Gimli’s axe are just some of the icons contained within a structure crowned by a cubic zirconia set in the emblem of the White Tree of Gondor.
The cap’s major features are a hand-enamelled Eye of Sauron suspended in the Tower of Barad-dûr, and a clip resembling Frodo’s Elvish blade, Sting. In place of a conventional capband sits a removable replica of the One Ring, inscribed with Tengwar script and plated in gold.
Three, seven, and nine rings forged for Elves, Dwarves, and Men provide the basis for the 379 Sterling Silver limited pieces.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) wrote his sequel to The Hobbit (1937) between 1937 and 1949. It was finally published as a trilogy in 1954- 55.
A blockbuster, serialized television series based on Tolkien’s epic is currently in production. Few details are known, but Amazon Prime appears poised to launch its campaign soon.
