MONTBLANC: Picasso 18K White Gold Atelier Privés Limited Edition 39 Fountain Pen
Released in December 2012 and sold out by January 2013, this is one of Montblanc's most eagerly collected limited editions of recent times, and one of the company's most ambitious and daring pen designs.

The skeletonized 18K solid white gold cap extends almost the full length of the pen. The cap's design is inspired by Picasso's "Portrait de Jeune Fille" (in a brilliant inspiration worthy of Picasso himself, the clip, set against the window, represents the girl's face). The cap is engraved with sketches and remarks from Picasso's sketchbooks, and the endpiece has red lacquer stripes representing the national color of Spain. The faceted barrel is shaped to resemble Picasso's preferred sketch pencils, and the captop is set with a special multifaceted diamond cut in the form of Montblanc's famous star emblem.

18K gold nib engraved after Picasso's drawing, "Ojo," size not indicated, appears extra-fine. Outer box, lacquered wood display box, small suede drawstring bag with extra nib, hardcover folder with booklet and certificate. Limited Edition: 09/39.
