All Details

The Patron of Art Edition Marquise de Pompadour honours a captivating personality and an outstanding historical figure. The splendid gold-plated barrel and mountings of Edition 4810 represent the luxury of court life at Versailles. The cap, made of fine Meissen porcelain and decorated with a hand-painted, sepiacoloured rose finished in gold, recalls the Marquise’s love of porcelain. As a tribute to the age in which she lived, the 18-karat gold nib is decorated by a delicate engraving typical of the rococo style.

Edition 888 pays a special tribute to the Marquise de Pompadour: both the cap of this fine pen – which is lovingly decorated with a hand-painted motif of the Marquise – and the barrel, which is also hand-painted with a delicate pattern of flowers, are made of Meissen porcelain.

All mountings in this Limited Edition are of 750 solid gold.

About

The Marquise de Pompadour – the charming mistress of King Louis XV – was not only one of the most charismatic figures at the court of Versailles, but also a passionate and committed art lover. The “rococo muse” supported, among others, promising writers such as Voltaire and musicians such as the young Mozart. She also played a crucial role in founding the French porcelain factory in Sèvres, and gave creative suggestions for the design of many famous building projects in Paris, such as the Place de la Concorde.
