Montblanc Homage to Hadrian - Limited Edition 4810
The new Patron of Art collection homage the big emperor Hadrian.
Hadrian, one of the most powerful and respected governors of history, dedicated to ensuring peace and prosperity.
The most striking architectural heritage of Hadrian is the Phanteon, with its extraordinary unreinforced dome and the imposing columns of the portico, each carved from a single block of stone from Egypt, a land of which Hadrian fell in love.
The material of the body and the cap are the basalt, the shape of the cone and the upper part of the cap, covered in gold, recall precisely the archtectus and the material used for the Pantheon.
At the center of the upper part of the bonnet, as usual, is the Montblanc emblem in black and white resin.
In this new Patron of Art collection we find many details that unite us with the story of Hadrian:
the serpentine circular motif of the part of the cone covered with ruthenium was inspired by the summer decorations and Hadrian's villa, Villa Adriana.
the gold-coated cap ring is adorned with two medallions: the jellyfish and the god Osiris.
the clip depicts a bundle of ripe wheat, the main attribute of the goddess Demeter.
on the nib is engraved the phoenix of Hadrian, with the halo and the branch of laurel.

Montblanc Patron of Art Ludwig II 4810
Ludwig II (25 August 1845 – 13 June 1886), called the Swan King or the Fairy Tale King, was King of Bavaria from 1864 until his death in 1886.
He exercised his penchant for elaborate castles by building three architectural masterpieces: Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neuschwanstein, the fanciful vision of a medieval fortress.
The swan became his royal emblem, which is symbolically elevated by the Lohengrin Saga and immortalized as a design motif throughout Ludwig's castles.
Ludwig II spent all his royal revenues on these projects, borrowed extensively, and defied all attempts by his ministers to restrain him.
This extravagance was used against him to declare him insane, an accusation which has since come under scrutiny.
Today, his architectural and artistic legacy includes many of Bavaria's most important tourist attractions.

A gold-coated piano frame decorates the cap whereas the cap of the 888 edition is made of artfully skeletonized Au 750 solid gold. Black and white piano keys adorn the barrel of the 888 edition.

Steinway on the Au 750 solid gold nib.
The Sir Henry Tate 2006 Patron of Art, limited to 4810 fountain pens, is characterized by a clear and well-structured shape. The source of inspiration is the neoclassical architecture of the Tate Britain Museum, funded by Sir Henry Tate. The geometric lines of the plated platinum body and the decoration of the hood rings resemble the characteristic elements of the building's style that houses the museum and create an elegant contrast with the hood and inlaid body of red lacquer worked guilloché. The top of the hood features an ivory ivory star Montblanc.
The platinum plated 18-karat gold nib can be portrayed with a rotating motion with a dual cartridge or converter charging system. He is finely engraved with two sugar canees, an allusion to the raw material that allowed Sir Henry Tate to "help the art of the United Kingdom to get the rightful place and to satisfy millions of people in this and the next "generations. The exclusive edition also includes the fountain pen "Sir Henry Tate", whose edition is limited to only 888 pens in massive gold 750 and worked with gray lacquer engravings. The top of the hood is surrounded by a series of diamonds with square cut.
The Patron of Art Edition 2001 Marquise de Pompadour is a tribute to a fascinating personality that rarely appears in history books.

The engraving made in Rococo style, in honor of the historic era in which the Marchesa lived, finishes the 18 KT gold nib
