Every year since 1992, Montblanc has honored an influential patron of art from antiquity to the 20th century with a limited edition writing instrument. Each Patron of Art Limited Edition underscores Montblanc's belief that art and culture are an essential part of any thriving society and can only flourish with the support of dedicated patrons. For the 30th (1992-2022) and final edition, Montblanc created a double edition, honoring the life and legacy of British monarch Albert and her consort Victoria..
The Montblanc Patron of Art Hommage to Victoria & Albert Limited Edition 4810 marks the early years of the royal couple with a barrel in pearl white lacquer, a symbol of purity and youth, and a cone embellished with a traditional Victorian pattern, as well as the entwined "V&A monogram, in which the couple gladly united their initials.
The edition dedicated to Victoria has a cap in translucent mint green lacquer, one of her favorite colors to wear. The decorative pattern visible under the lacquer of the cap is inspired by the fence around the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, London. The cap is decorated with a royal blue crown and the Montblanc emblem in precious resin. The words "I will be good" are engraved on the cap ring. The shape of the clip is inspired by her scepter with a green stone that refers to her engagement ring from Albert. The handcrafted Au 750 solid gold, champagne plated nib is decorated with a stylized rose representing Queen Victoria, who is still remembered today as 'England's Rose'.
Limited to 4810 pieces, which represent the height of the Mont Blanc mountain in meters, the Patron of Art Limited Edition 4810 fountain pen is now available.
