A Pen for Presidents' Day
February 20, 2012 | Homepage
Famed writing instrument purveyor Montblanc is celebrating Presidents’ Day with the release of its Andrew Jackson Artisan Edition Pen ($33,300). Symbolizing the number of states in the union, only 50 of the limited-edition pens have been produced. Encased in an intricate solid white gold skeleton net overlay, the pen nods to Jackson with an engraving of his signature and dates important to his legislative period. The clip is imprinted with his portrait and includes a sapphire, which references his blue eyes. Black elements on the cone, cap, and middle ring are a tribute to his celebrated military career.
Previous presidential editions released by Montblanc include George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. As in all the pieces belonging to this unique series, AMERICAN’S SIGNATURES FOR FREEDOM is engraved on each handcrafted 18-karat gold nib and showcases 13 stars to commemorate the States that adopted The Declaration of Independence. Available today, Tyson’s Galleria, 2001 International Dr., McLean, VA, 703-734-5101
