MONTBLANC: Mahatma Gandhi Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen
In honor of the great advocate of Indian independence, teacher of non-violence and exemplar of humanity, Montblanc created this exceptional pen. The white lacquered barrel stands for truth and peace. The sterling silver mountings on cap and cone are shaped to resemble a spindle, Gandhi's favored symbol of common cause with the people. The clip is set with a bright mandarin garnet, whose cut is reminiscent of a spinning wheel, an object of great symbolic value to Gandhi. Medium 18K rhodium-plated gold nib engraved with portrait of Gandhi. Outer box, display box, booklet and a small hardcover volume of Gandhi's words of wisdom. Limited Edition: 0053/3000.
