Dear fellow FPN-friends

 

Back again to show you my Patron of Art pen.

It’s my first one and I want to give you the same feeling that I have got when opening it. So take your time (this topic will be picture heavy) and hope you will enjoy this moment together with me.

 

When I received the bag I felt that the packaging of this pen is much heavier and bigger than I am used to have.

I received it at my office and wanted to open this in a quiet moment to enjoy and take pictures of it step by step. This is the view of my glimpse at it.

Now the opening of the bag starts. Hey MB changed the colour of the packingpaper (used to be gold and green)

Let’s open it. Oh the wrong side. So you still don’t know which pen I got.

Aah the moment of revealing the name of the POA.

Wow this is the first time I see that even the penbox has been sealed.

After opening the box.

Finally everything unpacked

Let the pictures speak for themself

fpn_1397943748__img_2278_large.jpg

 

 

This pen reminds me of the Collodi

fpn_1397943800__steinway_vs_collodi.jpg

 

fpn_1397943897__steinway_collodi_mann.jp

 

First impressions of the pen is that has a classique appearance with its pianablack-laque and goldfittings. The section of the pen is not that steep as maybe previous factory pics shows. The grip is ok and I don't feel anything annoying when holding the pen as normal.

 

So that's it for now. I am not planning to use this one, so no writingsamples with the pen this time.

I think I will keep it to admire it now and then.

 

Hope you enjoyed watching the pics.

Happy Easter to you!

Fantastic pen for those who enjoy pens and the piano and two prestigious brands in their respective industries.  Congrats!!

 

P.S.  I'm not one for buying pens for investment, but if any pen will increase in value, I predict it's this one.

Big fan of the Henry E Steinway POA pens. I just got my 888 yesterday - wasn't convinced by the photographs on the web but when I saw and handled it in person, it was a different story.

congrats on the pen.

 

I am puzzled by you not wanting to ink it.  What's the point of just looking at it?  You already opened the box, might as well enjoy it.

 

Kind of like buying a new car at the dealer and towing it to your garage. 

 

I guess if I wanted to leave a pen uninked... would just go look at them at the Mont Blanc boutique. =)

 

Hopefully you get some ink in her.  Congrats again.

Congrats on your beautiful new pen! I just cannot understand the point in buying such an expensive pen and not writing with. It's like having a Porsche lying in your garage. :)

But it's a personal choice, of course.
Happy Eastern!

Hi KJY what a beautiful pen indeed absolutely gorgeous, is this pen meant to represent something about the arts. Also is it a piston filler. Btw did you have to pay extra for gift wrapping, congratulations and enjoy it. What ink are you planning to use in it.

Great collection of pics which capture the anticipation of what is within. On the pen itself yes I do like the looks of that one although do like to hold etc prior to commiting to buy. Enjoy in good health

Hi Albinoni,

Yes it is a pistonfiller. Every year MontBlanc brings out a new Patron of Art (POA) and a Writers Edition (WE) to dedicate it to a famous Patron and writer.

The POA comes out in limited edtions of 4810 and 888 pieces. The 888 has the same theme. The difference is that MB use more delicate materials (launched every year's March/April)

The WE is a different story. The limited pieces vary. In the beginning there where 30.000 pieces and nowadays MB has narrowed it down to + 10.000 pieces (launched every year's September)

Their websites also shows some of there limited versions with additional info.

 

My supplier Appelboom still has some POA's and also ships to Australia. (Gift wrapping is ofcourse included)

 

Kind regards,

KJ

Oops,

Noticed that I forgot to add a pic of the clip. I know that for some members it is very important that the clip does not have any special forms.

 

The shape of the gold-plated clip references the once-patented screw clamps used for bending the grand piano rim into its sweeping curve.
