Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc George Bernard Shaw Writers Edition Fountain Pen, Mechanical Pencil and Ballpoint Set which comes with its Montblanc book style presentation box (including outer) and unstamped booklet. All three writing instruments have never been used and are presented in essentially as new condition – the M sticker, confirming a medium nib, can still be found on the piston cone of the fountain pen.

 

 

 

Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2008 it was George Bernard Shaw, the Irish freethinker. The set is inspired by the character Eliza Doolittle from his most famous play Pygmalion. Just as Eliza, a poor flower girl, is brought up to be an aristocratic lady, so the platinum trim on the pen is replaced more and more towards the cap by the opulent dark green of the precious resin.

 

 

 

The beautiful deep marbled green represents the lush fields that Shaw left behind in Ireland. This is one of the most eye-catching of all the Writers Editions and will be a fine addition to any collection.

 

 

 

The fountain pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink. The ballpoint comes with a new refill and the pencil has 0.7mm leads.

With every writing instrument 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”.
