Montblanc Great Characters Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 Fountain Pen
Miles Davis was one of the world’s foremost jazz musicians. Each time he reinvented himself, the international jazz scene followed his lead into new and exciting musical territory. He was called the Master of Styles, Prince of Darkness, King of Cool – all titles evoking mystery and power. Even a quarter of a century after his death in 1991, he remains one of the greatest figures in jazz history.
The Montblanc Great Characters Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 Fountain Pen tells the story of one of the greatest jazz personalities. The surface of the cap and barrel is engraved with symbolic motifs in reference to the five major jazz periods he helped to create. Also decorating the cap is a spiral representing the tornado he witnessed as a child and spoke of as the spiritual source of the powerful wind he needed to play the trumpet. This unique edition is further adorned with an engraving of his silhouette on the handcrafted gold nib and ‘2006’ on the barrel in memory of the year his name was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A star, set with a diamond, is engraved on the barrel, and Miles Davis’s famous album Kind of Blue is reflected in the blue colour on the cone. The Montblanc emblem, made of white agate stone and black onyx, crowns the cap top. This platinum-coated edition is limited to 1,926 fountain pens and 1,926 rollerball in honour of the year of Miles Davis’s birth.
