Homage to the Swan King  

Montblanc pays tribute to one of the great cultural figures of the 19th century, patron of Richard Wagner and builder of fantasy palaces — Ludwig II of Bavaria. With its birds and floral motifs, the skeleton design of the Patron of Art Homage to Ludwig II Limited Edition 888 fountain pen is inspired by the murals in the lavish throne room at Neuschwanstein, a romantic fortress decorated with scenes from Wagner’s operatic masterpieces.

The Au750 solid-gold overlay features a cut-out design that allows the translucent white lacquer to show underneath, paired with a platinum-coated, swan-shaped clip and fittings decorated with engravings. The cap ring is set with a round cut ruby and the Montblanc emblem at the top of the cap is made of mother-of-pearl.
