The Montblanc Heritage Egyptomania Resin GT ballpoint pen. This year's Heritage collection is inspired by writing instruments from the Montblanc archives of the 1920s and 1930s. This was a time when the history of ancient Egypt and its discoveries fascinated Europe. In principle, this was mainly due to the decipherment of hieroglyphic writing by Jean-François Champollion in 1822. However, Howard Carter's discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922 caused a veritable Egyptomania in Europe.

In line with their predecessors, the shape of the frame is octagonal and all pens have a retro clip decorated with a scarab, the symbol of the human heart and immortality. The engraving on the cap, Montblanc in hieroglyphics"white stone mountain", recalls the passion for Egyptian culture in the 1920s.
The collection consists of two editions, each available as a fountain pen, ballpoint pen and rollerball pen.
