Montblanc Writers Edition Jonathan Swift Fountain Pen
This pen is a consignment pen, so it is pre-owned. It has not been used or carried, but it has been handled so there are micro scratches present. No major scratches or issues with the pen. Comes complete with original box and papers. It is equipped with a Medium nib.
The overall design of the Writer’s Edition 2012 is inspired by the authors most well known work “Gulliver’s Travels” and brings to life the fantastical world created by Swift. The barrel is made of black lacquer and decorated with multi-layered inlays reminiscent of the ropes that were used to bind Gulliver on the beach of Lilliput island. The cap is made of black precious resin and shaped like Gulliver’s tricorn. It bears the signature of Jonathan Swift while the clip depicts the staircase the mayor of Lilliput had to climb to be able to talk to Gulliver. Both clip and fittings are platinum-plated. The rhodium-plated 18K gold nib is decorated with an elaborate engraving showing the imperial army of Lilliput marching between Gulliver’s legs.
