Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Montblanc Carlo Collodi Writers Limited Edition Fountain Pen, Mechanical Pencil and Ballpoint Pen Set. It comes with its book style Montblanc presentation box (including outer) and unstamped paperwork. None of the writing instruments have been used and as such all are presented in virtually as new condition. The M sticker confirming a medium nib, can still be found on the barrel on the fountain pen. Only 3,000 sets were produced and these all have the matching number 1195.

 

Launched in 2011, as the yearly offering from the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Collodi is one of the most striking and recognisable pens from the series. With it’s skeletonised Champagne-tone gold-plated cap and dark-brown precious resin, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most sought-after and collectible writers editions.

The design of the Collodi writing instruments take their inspirations from his most famous work, Pinocchio. The skeletonised cap shows Pinocchio and his companions, the good fairy, the loyal cricket, the shady fox, the deceitful cat and the whale. The shape is a nod to his nose and the screw set in to the clip is symbolic of the joints of this famous marionette.

 

The 18k medium nib features a fine engraving of a cricket, which in the story is the embodiment of Pinnochio’s conscience.
