The splendidly ornamented Patron of Art Edition Catherine II the Great commemorates the great era of the Russian Empire. This limited edition Montblanc 4810 pen features gold coated ornamentation with blossom wreath motifs over the aubergine-coloured barrel.
A dedicated 18-karat gold nib, into which the symbol of the Russian monarchy – the two-headed eagle – complements the pen.
Tsarina Catherine’s ambition was to continue the work of Peter the Great. Indeed, her commitment to the arts was impressive: she corresponded with Voltaire, Diderot and d’Alembert, among others. She is responsible for having the Hermitage – the famous winter palace – erected in St. Petersburg, and it is thanks to her love of painting that the royal art collection grew from a few dozen paintings to more than 4,000.
This Montblanc Patron of Art Catherine the Great 4810 was introduced in 1997 in only 4810 numbered pieces.
The pen that we are offering here is sealed by the manufacturer and is in perfect condition. It comes in the luxurious giftbox Montblanc designed for this edition.
