Lot Details
MONTBLANC: The Fortune Number 88 Limited Edition Fountain Pen

This pen's clear body is encased in a red gold lattice-work design of interlocking 8s. 8 rings circle the cap and cone, while the clip is decorated with a diamond studded 8. 5 ¾" (14.5 cm). Medium 18 K red gold nib engraved with yin and yang symbol. Black lacquered box with all original packaging and papers. Limited Edition: 43/88.
