MONTBLANC: Charlie Chaplin Skeleton Limited Edition 88 Fountain Pen
This outstanding instrument pays tribute to perhaps the greatest figure of 20th century cinema, Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin's classic character, the Little Tramp, became an emblem of the indomitable spirit of humanity, comically beset by adversity, but never defeated. This pen's intricate cog-wheels of 18 karat 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 famous persona: the barrel and cone are suggestive of his baggy trousers; the captop is based upon his ever-present bowler hat; and the solid gold clip resembles his indispensable walking cane. Medium 18K rhodium-plated gold nib engraved with Chaplin's iconic accoutrements. Outer box, inner box, display box, booklet. Limited Edition: 06/88.
