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 Patron of Art Edition Marquise de Pompadour honors a captivating personality and an outstanding historical figure.
The cap, made of fine Meissen porcelain and decorated with a hand-painted, sepia-colored rose finished in gold, recalls the Marquise’s love of porcelain.
As a tribute to the age in which she lived, the 18kt solid 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 made of 18kt solid gold.
This is an exclusive limited edition fountain pen of 888 numbered pieces that was released in 2001.
The Marquise de Pompadour 888 fountain pen we are offering is new from our stock and is in perfect condition. It comes in the luxurious giftbox that Montblanc prepared excludively for this edition.
