Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Patron of Art 4810 Hommage Andrew Carnegie Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with an izods presentation box.

In 2002 as part of their Patron of Art series, Montblanc chose to honour the legendary steel tycoon and cultural pilanthropist, Andrew Carnegie.

Carnegie was born in Scotland, but emigrated to the USA. He firmly believed that wealthy people should spend much of their fortune on charitable works and in the pursuit of this he spent more than USD 350m, which was almost his entire fortune! This money was used to start cultural foundations, public libraries and programmes to support the most fashionable artists of his day.

One of his great passions, was the artistic style known as art nouveau. The clip of the pen is styled as a graceful female figure, with wings that wrap around the cap of the pen, in the style of a butterfly. the barrel and cap are crafted from black precious resin, with the sterling silver fretwork offering a stunning contrast.

 

The 18k medium (slightly on the finer side) nib has a fine engraving of a lily, which was a popular art nouveau motif.

 

This really is a wonderfully detailed writing instrument and as with most other Patron of Arts, this is a piston filling pen, so bottled ink is your choice. We’ve serviced the piston filling mechanism, so it’s extremely smooth.

 

The important details are as follows…

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.

As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
