Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Montblanc Leo Tolstoy Writers Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its book style Montblanc presentation box (including outer) and information booklet – confirming first purchase on 24th July 2015. The pen has never been used and is presented in virtually as new condition. The M sticker, confirming a medium nib, can still be found on the barrel. This was originally part of a set and is number 21 and we’ll include the original set outer (a few marks to this).

 

 

Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2015 it was the legendary Russian author, Leo Tolstoy – famous for works such a “War and Peace” and “Anna Karenina”.

 

 

The design of the pen takes its inspiration from the Tolstoy’s family home. The pillars at the entrance of the estate are depicted by the shape of the top of the cap. His philosophy of working the land is symbolised by the handcrafted, hammered silver-plated barrel.

 

 

The dark grey resin cap and mottled blue piston cone are a nod to the colours used on the covers of his first major works. The design on the cap ring is inspired by a traditional woven Russian pattern.

 

 

The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib, which features an engraving of the family’s coat-of-arms. This is a piston filling pen, so your choice here is bottled ink.
