Montblanc Patron of the Arts Andrew Carnegie 4810 Fountain Pen 7275
We are offering a preowned but never used Montblanc Patron of the Arts Andrew Carnegie 4810 Fountain Pen, the pen comes with the dedicated wooden box, and the outer cardboard box, and a standard Montblanc service book. It is missing the dedicated booklet.
Montblanc dedicated this edition to Andrew Carnegie in 2002.
The fountain pen is made of black precious resin, has an elaborate silver filigree that encompasses the barrel, cap, and clip of the pen. The pen uses an integrated piston, and has a dedicated 18kt solid gold nib bearing a flower design and engravings related to the edition.
Andrew Carnegie is still considered one of the greatest patrons of culture in the modern world.
A Steel tycoon who emigrated from Scotland to the USA, he was firmly convinced that wealthy people were morally obliged to dedicate themselves to charitable works. So he spent more than 350 million dollars on cultural foundations, public libraries and cultural programs, and on fostering talented art nouveau artists.
The stylish and elegant Patron of Art Edition Hommage a Andrew Carnegie recalls the artistic style that Carnegie supported so enthusiastically: art nouveau. the Clip of the pen is a graceful female figure, whose wings wrap around the cap of the pen like a butterfly’s.
The black resin of the barrel of Edition 4810 provides a striking contrast to this delicate fretwork effect in 925 sterling silver. A delicately engraved lily – popular art nouveau motif – decorates the rhodium-plated 18 carat gold nib.
