Montblanc Francois Patron of Art Fountain Pen
King Francois I left his mark on France's national culture as a royal Patron of the arts. The design of the Limited Edition Francois fountain pen pays tribute to the life and work of the French Renaissance King. Splendid insignia of royal power blend harmoniously with artistic expression. The Edition 4810 pen features a tiger-eye gemstone, a reference to a charm worn by Francois I, contrasting with the black precious resin of the cap and barrel. Ornamental Renaissance patterns are masterfully engraved on the elaborately modelled clip and gold-plated, giving the pen its royal aura. The specially designed 18K gold nib bears the engraved symbil of the French Royal house: the French lily. The ivory-coloured Montblanc emblem on the top of the cap completes the regal appearance of this unique writing instrument.
