Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Patron of Art 4810 Peggy Guggenheim Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its full set of presentation boxes (including outers) and paperwork – confirming first purchase on 20th June 2016 . The pen remains sealed in its plastic pouch and as such is presented in new condition. Only 888 examples were produced and this is number 203.

 

 

In 2016, Montblanc honoured the American art collection, bohemian and socialiate, Peggy Guggenheim. The design is inspired by her art collection, with the black lacquered cap and barrel featuring art deco style patterns.

 

 

The pen is crafted from 18k solid red gold. The red lacquer spiral piston cone, finished with diamonds at its end, is a nod to the striped mooring poles in Venice, which is where she settled and exhibited her collection, at the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. The embossed lion head’s (with garnet eyes) on the cap ring are a reference to her Venetian palace and the lion of St Mark. The cap top sees the iconic Montblanc snowcap emblem crafted from marble.

 

 

The 18k medium nib is finely engraved with dog paws, as she adored her Lhasa Apsos dogs! It’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.

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”.
