MONTBLANC: Picasso 18K Yellow Gold Atelier Privés Limited Edition 91 Fountain Pen
Two versions of this pen were made to satisfy demand: a super-limited edition in white gold and this edition in yellow gold. Both editions sold out instantly and have become difficult to find.

The skeletonized 18K solid yellow gold cap covers almost the entire length of the pen. The cap's design is inspired by Picasso's "Portrait de Jeune Fille," and is engraved with the artist's sketches and remarks. The barrel resembles Picasso's preferred sketch pencils; the clip, set against the cap window, represents the face of Picasso's "Jeune Fille;" and the captop is set with a mother-of-pearl star. Mint condition.

Medium 18K gold nib engraved after Picasso's drawing, "Ojo". Outer box, lacquered wood display box, booklet. Limited Edition: 84/91.

Provenance: Fine Montblancs from a European Collection.
