MONTBLANC - QING DYNASTY Limited edition fountain pen launched in 2002, beautifully crafted in jade. Limited to 2002 copies (n°1563). Europe in the Middle Ages already venerated faraway China, considered at the time as a civilization of art and culture, rich in traditions. Stories were told there about a legendary rock that expert hands metamorphosed into an exotic material: jade. During the Qing Dynasty, Chinese master craftsmen made unique sculptures and everyday objects from this fascinating material, which left its mark on an entire era. The Special Edition Qing Dynasty is a tribute to this great era of Chinese culture. The cap of pure jade is its exceptional feature: it is embraced by a five-clawed dragon (in China a symbol of luck, strength and longevity), meticulously hand engraved. Gold-plated attributes. Medium 18k yellow gold nib engraved with the effigy of a dragon. Piston filling system. Without its case.
