After launching the Mahatma Gandhi limited special theme edition pens, Montblanc has launched Elizabeth I Limited Edition 4810 and 888.

This is part of Montblanc’s Patron of Art Edition honouring a legendary benefactor of the arts and culture since this writing instrument line was conceived in 1992.

The Elizabeth I Limited Edition 888 is a 750 solid gold fountain pen featuring a barrel and cap in precious lacquer.

Hand engraved on its 18 K gold nib is a bejeweled gold crown in which Elizabeth I ascended the throne in 1559.

Topping the cap is the Montblanc emblem rendered in shimmering mother-of-pearl.

The clip descends from a solid gold Tudor Rose while its embellishment, a princess cut green garnet reflects the bejewelled crown.

The intricate interlaced motif, derived from the needlework cover of The Mirror of the Sinful Soul, beautifies the solid gold cap and barrel.
