Montblanc Limited Edition Patron of Art Napoleon Fountain Pen
The Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Napoléon Bonaparte is dedicated to a figure
in history whose life had a far-reaching impact. Napoléon’s glory lives on in the great “architecture parlante” style of the famous Parisian structures built during his reign, in addition to other arts such as painting, sculpture and the decorative arts. The overall fountain pen design is inspired by the neoclassic style. The pattern of golden bees on dark blue lacquer is inspired by Napoléon’s throne in Fontainebleau, and the sword-shaped clip bears the Napoléonic “N”. Engravings on the cap top – a laurel wreath, imperial
crown and an eagle refer to Napoléon’s coronation insignia. The cap is crowned by the Montblanc Emblem in precious resin. The clip is decorated with a red stone recalling the coronation ring of Napoléon’s wife Joséphine. In homage to Napoléon Bonaparte, the handcrafted 18K solid gold nib bears a portrait of Napoléon with the typical bicorn hat.
