FAIRY TALE

Identity - - FORUM -

The lat­est Mont­blanc Pa­tron of Art pens cel­e­brate the ex­tra­or­di­nary life and cul­tural legacy of Lud­wig II of Bavaria (25 Au­gust 1845 – 13 June 1886), re­ferred to as the ‘ Swan King’ or the ‘ Fairy Tale King’. The Lim­ited Edi­tion 4810 fea­tures a cap made of translu­cent lac­quer with a spe­cial guil­loche de­sign un­der­neath that em­u­lates white feath­ers, and a cham­pagne gold-coated clip shaped like the long-curved neck and head of the grace­ful wa­ter bird. The Lim­ited Edi­tion 888 is in­spired by mu­ral paint­ings of the lav­ish throne room at Neuschwanstein, and the Lim­ited Edi­tion 40 pairs the tech­ni­cal vir­tu­os­ity of the métiers d’art with some of the most pre­cious ma­te­ri­als. With a lim­i­ta­tion of num­ber of just 40 pieces, in ref­er­ence to the age at which Lud­wig died in 1886, the foun­tain pen is made from solid Au750 cham­pagne-coloured gold. The cap of the writ­ing in­stru­ment fea­tures a guil­loche un­der a white lac­quer sur­face, mas­ter­fully dec­o­rated with a hand-en­graved gold in­lay of a lion mo­tif, the sym­bol of Bavaria. 04 434 0300 / mont­blanc.com
