Product description

With every one of its Heritage editions, Montblanc resurfaces historic editions from the Maison’s rich past and reimagines them for today’s writing culture enthusiasts with new designs and technical innovations. One such pen is the so-called Montblanc ‘Egyptian Fountain Pen’ from the 1920s. During that decade, at the peak of archaeological adventures and discoveries, ancient Egypt captured the world’s imagination when great treasures were excavated including King Tutankhamen’s tomb. A new era of “Egyptomania” - a fascination with all things linked to ancient Egyptian civilization – would have an unprecedented influence on the world of arts and intellectual life across Europe and beyond. This obsession for Egypt also infiltrated the world of Montblanc when the Maison released a fountain pen featuring an octagonal shape and Egyptian style engravings.

The cap of this new version is embellished with a set of authentic hieroglyphics that translate into the word “Montblanc”. Created in partnership with an expert in Egyptology, the symbols mean “white stone mountain”, effectively describing “Montblanc”. The hieroglyphics featured on the barrel of the Doué version are taken from a passage of the “Book of the Dead” of Hunefer, a royal scribe who lived during the 19th century (1300 B.C). It is one of the most important findings in Egyptology as it provides insight into the “trials” that needed to be completed in order for an individual to reach the afterlife during the “Judgment Scene”. The scene depicts the weighing of the heart to determine if the deceased lived a respectable life, and whether they would gain access to the afterlife.

Beyond the aesthetic qualities of the collection, the nib on the fountain pen features a contemporary design with a triangular heart-hole that offers a softer writing style reminiscent of historical Montblanc fountain pens.
