Montblanc Great Characters Limited Edition Alfred Hitchcock Fountain Pen, which comes with it’s original large presentation box (including black outer), stamped service guide – confirming first purchase on 5th July 2013. It also comes with a film can containing a book of Hitchcock quotes. The pen has just returned from being serviced by Montblanc in Hamburg and the paperwork will be provided to the purchaser. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in very good condition.
The Alfred Hitchcock pens were released in 2011 and only 3000 were produced – this is number 2249. There are so many delightful nods to Hitchcock’s career, including the knife-shaped clip reminiscent of “Psycho” and the surface effect on the barrel and cap for dizzying staircase in “Vertigo”.
The sterling silver rings on the cap feature engravings of the notes that would have identified the original film reel of “Psycho”, with the 53 hatch marks on the cone symbolising every movie that Hitchcock directed during his impressive career spanning nearly six decades.
This is a piston filling pen, so bottled ink is the option here. The pen is fitted with a medium 18k rhodium plated nib, which features a fine engraving of Hitchcock’s silhouette.
The important details are as follows…
– 18k Medium Nib
– Limitation Number – 2249 / 3000
– Presentation Box
– Stamped Paperwork
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
With these pens no longer being available, it represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a lovely example from a trusted seller.
