The Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Napoléon Bonaparte writing instrument is dedicated to a historical figure who left a lasting mark on history.
Napoleon's glory is expressed in the "architecture parlante" - famous buildings erected during his reign that still characterize the Parisian cityscape today. However, it was not only architecture that flourished during this period, but also other art forms such as painting, sculpture and the decorative arts.
The design of this creation is inspired by neoclassicism. For example, the blue lacquer references the blue uniform Napoleon wore as consul, as this edition pays tribute to his time as French consul. The skeletonized spiral pays homage to the original Colonne Vendôme.
The sword-shaped clip features Napoleon's signature "N".
And the engravings in the cap head - a laurel leaf, an imperial crown and an eagle - are borrowed from Napoleon's insignia. The cap is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl. The tip of the clip is adorned with a red garnet, reminiscent of Napoleon's wife Joséphine's coronation ring.
As a tribute to Napoleon Bonaparte, the handcrafted nib in solid 750 gold features his portrait wearing his signature two-pointed hat.
We stock this fountain pen in nib width "M" (medium) as standard, but will be happy to have a nib exchanged to any other nib size at Montblanc. This extends the delivery time by about 14 days.
