Montblanc Patron of Arts Homage to Scipione Borghese 4810 Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its stamped paperwork confirming original purchase from Montblanc on 19th October 2017 and full set of boxes (including white outer). This pen is entirely unused and in fact still remains factory sealed. It’s fitted with a medium nib which is engraved with the Borghese coat of arms.
The first two photos are of the sealed box and the remainder are taken from another Scipione Borghese that we’ve previously sold. The one you’ll receive comes in its factory sealed box.
As part of their yearly Patron of Arts series Montblanc honours a great visionary or person of extreme importance in history. In 2017 they’ve chosen Scipione Borghese, the Italian Cardinal, art collector and patron of the arts.
Born in 1577 and a member of the Borghese family, he is famously known for being the patron of both the painter Carvaggio and artist Benini. His legacy is the world-famous art collection at the Villa Borghese in Rome, which is renowned for its Roman interior decoration and arguably the most comprehensive selection of Baroque sculpture anywhere in the world. This pen is one of the most stunning examples from the POA range and has certainly caught the eye of both Montblanc fans and collectors alike. The combination of the solid granite barrel and ruthenium coated brass clip and cap, make this instantly recognisable… with the smokey quartz gemstone sitting proudly on the clip. We’ve sold every single POA pen and to be honest this is one of our favourites… it’s an exceptionally handsome pen.
The pattern on the cap and piston cone are reminiscent of the Borghese vase, with the top of the cap shaped to resemble a Cardinals hat. The Carneol medal on the piston cone features a portrait of Borghese.
This particular pen is number 0849/4810. The important details are as follows…
