Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Patron of Art 4810 Pope Julius II Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its lacquered presentation box (including outers) and information booklet – confirming first purchase on 31st January 2023. As with other POA pens, only 4810 were produced and this is number 3692. The pen has never been used and is presented in essentially as new condition – the protective tape still remains on the section.
In 2005, Montblanc honoured Pope Julius II, who is considered to be one of the most influential patron of the arts. He was responsible for the transformation of Rome in to a Renaissance cultural centre and he supported artists such as Michaelangelo and Raphael. He commissioned the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and ordered the building of St. Peter’s Church.
The cap is inspired by the Papal crown and the nib features an engraving of the emblem of the Pope. The barrel and cap are crafted from a cream-coloured lacquer with a gold-plated lattice then sitting on top.
The pen is fitted with an 18k extra fine nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
Essentially As New Condition
Montblanc Presentation Box
Limitation Number present
Extra Fine Nib
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. 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”.
