Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Patron of Art 4810 Hommage Nicolaus Copernicus Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with it’s presentation box (including outer) and information booklet. The pen has just returned from being serviced by Montblanc in Hamburg (the paperwork will be supplied). The pen had never been inked prior to this, and the only reason for sending it to Montblanc was a common issue with the Copernicus, where the rings and lacquered sections become loose. The cap was replaced (the clip is original). Only 4810 were produced and this is number 1900.

 

 

 

In 2003, Montblanc honoured the legendary mathematician and astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. Copernicus was born in Poland in 1473 and is known, amongst many other things, for formulating the model of the universe where the Sun is at the centre, with the planets revolving around it.

 

 

 

The design of the pen reflects this idea, with the nine sterling silver rings symbolising the planets orbiting around the sun. Both the barrel and cap are crafted from a dark resin which has then been lacquered. The clip (also silver) has a green meteorite stone at the end of it, representing the universe

 

 

 

The 18k medium nib has a fine engraving of Copernicus’ orbital charts. It’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.

 

 

This really is a wonderfully detailed writing instrument and the star of the show is the large mother-of-pearl snowcap, that sits atop the cap.

 

 

The important details are as follows…
