Patron of Art Homage to Napoléon Bonaparte Limited Edition 888 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 heritage lives on in the great “architecture parlante” style of the famous Parisian structures built during his reign. In addition to architecture, other arts such as painting, sculpture and the decorative arts also blossomed under his leadership. The overall design is inspired by the neoclassic style. The blue lacquer is inspired by his blue uniform he wore as a consul, as this edition is celebrating his time as a French consul. The skeleton spiral is paying homage to the original Colonne Vendôme. The sword-shaped clip bears the Napoléonic “N”. The 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 mother of pearl. The clip end is decorated with a red garnet recalling the coronation ring of Napoleon’s wife Joséphine. In homage to Napoléon Bonaparte, the handcrafted Au 750 solid gold nib bears a portrait of Napoléon with the typical bicorn.
