Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Patron of Art 4810 Ludwig II Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with a standard Montblanc presentation box. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in overall lovely condition. Only 4810 were produced and this is number 1933.
In 2018, Montblanc honoured Ludwig II, the King of Bavaria from 1864 – 1886.
Known as the Swan King or the Fairy Tale King, he had a penchant for elaborate castles and created three architectural masterpieces – Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neushwanstein. The swan became his royal emblem, hence the Champagne-tone gold-plated clip resembling the shape of a swan.
The white lacquered cap has a guilloche feather design, with the blue lacquered barrel was chosen to represent the colour of his robes. The piston cone is shaped like a turret from Neuschwanstein and the nib is also engraved with the outline of the castle. On the cap ring can be found references to Wagner’s Lohengrin’.
The pen is fitted with an 18k fine nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…

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