Crafted from satin-finish sterling silver, Warner Bros. Centennial salutes screen and film industry icons: framing a parade of the studio’s most popular characters around the motif of a true Hollywood landmark – the Warner Bros. water tower located in Burbank, California.
Ornamentation on the Edition uses a low-relief stipple technique that lends vintage flavour and striking contrasts to contemporary graphics. Characters depicted in the design overlap with franchises already part of the Montegrappa canon, including Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and DC Super Heroes. Clapperboard markings on the cap band and barrel align perfectly when the cap is secured.
The same stipple technique is used to apply the Montegrappa Ambigram to the barrel base, which appears housed within a Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Opposite, a cartouche shaped like the iconic WB logo shield gives owners the opportunity to add their name or initials.
Alongside graphic elements, bespoke lost wax castings created for the design comprise a Warner Bros. water tower clip, and a sculpted finial styled on a traditional projector reel, and sealed with Warner Bros.’ exclusive 100th Anniversary logo. Together they represent the risk and reward of creative endeavour.
