MONTBLANC: Sir Winston Churchill Limited Edition 53 Fountain Pen
Sir Winston Churchill was voted the greatest Briton of all time for his courageous dedication to the cause of freedom. This stout, elegant pen testifies to the great Briton's iron will and determination, while the pen's radiant facets reflect the light of hope he gave to his countrymen (and indeed the world) in Britain's darkest hour. The barrel is crafted of 18 K pink gold, inlaid with black and brown tortoiseshell lacquer bands. The captop is ringed with 53 precious diamonds (to commemorate the year in which Churchill was both knighted and bestowed the Nobel Prize for Literature), and the Montblanc star is of mother-of-pearl. The great statesman's legendary "V for Victory" sign is echoed in the design of the clip. Medium 18 K gold nib engraved with Churchill's portrait. Black lacquered presentation box with all packaging and papers. Limited Edition: 53/53.

This pen was displayed in London's Imperial War Museum and comes with provenance papers and photographs.
