Item no: 115981
Montblanc once again supports UNICEF's mission that every child has the right to learn to read and write. Since 2004, the company has donated more than $ 10 million to education projects worldwide.
The Montblanc Meisterstück UNICEF "Gift of Writing" Skeleton fountain pen is based on the large 149 Meisterstück model. It is one of the most beautiful Skeletons of the last period, with an openwork platinum-plated shell that connects the first letters of the main 6 alphabets almost in 3D. The finish of the letters is remarkable, one is completely satin matt while the other is highly polished. The underlying holder is in transparent blue, matching the Unicef house color. The blue sapphire also refers to this and adorns the wide platinum plated clip ring. This clip ring is embossed all around with the same first letters of the six alphabets.n.
The motifs are inspired by the Rosetta Stone, which was discovered by French engineers in Egypt in 1799. The text on the stone is bilingual, Egyptian and Greek, however, written in three different ways, namely by Egyptian hieroglyphs and demotic script and in Greek. The Rosetta Stone thus became an important key with which Jean-Francois Champollion was able to decipher hieroglyphs in 1822. This discovery led to the translation of many texts. The multilingual inscription makes this ancient work of art one of the first signs of international understanding and cooperation. It also emphasizes the importance of writing in understanding different civilizations.
