Montblanc John F. Kennedy 1917 Limited Edition Fountain Pen
This pen is like new, complete with box and papers. It has a Medium nib.
Montblanc’s John F. Kennedy Limited Edition 1917 fountain pen is inspired by Kennedy’s one great passion: maritime navigation. The surface evokes an illusion of rigging under the lacquer of the body and cap, while the 18ct gold nib has been finely engraved with JFK’s Victura. The naval star that adorns the cone of this piece pays homage to Kennedy’s career in the U.S. Navy, while the number of pieces in the edition – 1917 – represents the birth year of this iconic politician.
A larger-than-life personality
The naval star that adorns the cone of the writing instrument is an allusion to Kennedy’s career in the U.S. Navy, as are the colors of the American flag: red, white and blue. The engraving that decorates the cap’s ring is inspired by Kennedy’s campaign for the presidency, which he won in 1960 with his slogan, “A time for greatness”. Finally, the number of pieces in the edition – 1917 – represents the birth year of this exceptional politician, who accomplished so much in a period of great international tension.
