Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Hadrian Limited Edition 4810 Fountain Pen
The Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Hadrian Limited Edition 4810 Fountain Pen honours Hadrian, one of history’s most powerful and respected rulers. As one of the ‘five good emperors’, Hadrian ruled for 21 years over an empire spanning three continents. Hadrian ended his predecessors’ expansion politics, stabilised the provinces and became a great emperor of peace and prosperity. His legacy was immense, since Hadrian invested in infrastructure and the arts in all parts of his enormous realm. It wasn’t only Rome and Athens that had him to thank for new buildings and comprehensive restorations, but many other cities of his empire as well.
The Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Hadrian Limited Edition 4810 Fountain Pen features Egyptian basalt stone cap and barrel, a tribute to the basalt columns of the Pantheon. The gradations on the gold coated cap top and cone recalls the dome of the Roman Pantheon while the ruthenium-coated winding circular decoration is influenced by the décor of Villa Adriana. The medallions on the cap ring is inspired by a Medusa embellishment on one of the best known busts of Hadrian, the other by Antinous’s portrait as the Egyptian God Osiris. In addition the clip is designed in shape of a ripe wheat sheaf, the main attribute of the goddess Demeter. The handcrafted Au 750 gold nib is artfully engraved with the Hadrianic phoenix with a halo and laurel leaf.
