Montblanc Donation Pen Leonard Bernstein Fountain Pen 2185
Leonard Bernstein was a musician through and through.
Whether he was conducting, composing, teaching or playing the piano, he always did it with true passion.
His first appearance as conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of only 25 years brought him overnight fame – it was the start of an unprecedented career. In the course of his tireless musical career, Bernstein composed unforgettable melodies and world-famous musicals such as “West Side Story”, “On the Town” and “Candide”.
Leonard Bernstein’s talent for bringing harmony into the finest detail is reflected in the Donation Pen dedicated to this great artist.
The gold-plated cap rings of the pen are inscribed with music and lyrics from the song “Maria” from “West Side Story” and are a testimony to Bernstein’s musical ability.
The clip is shaped into an artistically curved clef symbol, and the Leonard Bernstein Fountain Pen reaches a crescendo in the handmade nib, with its delicate engraving of a dove.
As a musical finishing touch, the dedicated presentation box that comes with the pen contains a compact disc with selected works by Bernstein played by the Philharmonie der Nationen.
The pen was released in 1996, has a 18kt gold nib and uses a piston filling system.
The fountain pen listed here is new, unused, never inked and in perfect condition but the original box is missing and will be packed in a standard Montblanc box.
