MONTBLANC: Charlie Chaplin Skeleton Limited Edition 88 Fountain Pen
This instrument pays tribute to perhaps the greatest figure of 20th century cinema, Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin's character, the Little Tramp, represents the indomitable spirit of humanity, comically beset by adversity but never defeated. This pen's intricate cog-wheels in 18K solid white gold suggest the machines and machinations featured in Chaplin's most celebrated film, Modern Times. Each detail of the pen's design recalls a different aspect of Chaplin's persona: the barrel and cone suggest his baggy trousers; the captop is based upon his bowler hat; and the solid gold clip resembles his cane. Medium 18K gold nib engraved with Chaplin's iconic accoutrements. Outer box, inner box, display box, booklet. Limited Edition: 30/88.
