Launched in 2013, as the yearly offering for the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Honore de Balzac is a tribute to this legendary French novelist and playwright. There are so many subtle nods to both his character and style of dress, including the shape of his shoes being reflected in the barrel cone.
The black resin cap and the grey body are decorated with stripes, which pay tribute to the cutaway one of the most important components of Balzacs wardrobe. He is renowned for carrying a lavishly decorated walking stick, which is portrayed by the platinum-plated clip with turquoise inlay. One of the most significant design points are the three rings, which are supposed to symbolise the social classes in 19th century France - brilliantly described in his masterpiece "La Comédie humaine". The, gold-plated clip ring stands for the nobility, the platinum-plated, discreetly decorated cap ring for the bourgeoisie, and the simply worked cone ring for the lower social strata. The important details are as follows..
Limitation Number 7798 / 8400. This pen is ready for many years of use or simply to be tucked away as part of a wider collection.
