Montblanc Statue of Liberty Ink Pen

German writing instruments manufacturer Montblanc has launched an exclusive Statue of Liberty ink pen, to mark the 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty in New York. As this is a limited-edition item, there will only be 50 Montblanc Statue of Liberty pens, with the number 50 signifying the 50 states of the United States of America. This exclusive Montblanc pen is an ink pen, and comes in a beautiful dark grey casing.

Features of the Montblanc Statue of Liberty Ink Pen

1. Date: Each Montblanc Statue of Liberty Pen will have the date ‘July 4, 1776’ written on it in raised Roman numerals. This date is the date on which the American Declaration of Independence was signed, and is also inscribed on the tablet held in the hand of The Statue of Liberty, in New York. This world famous monument was designed by Frédéric Bartholdi of France, and was given to the United States in October 1886, to celebrate 100 years of the Declaration of Independence.

2. Torch: The clip of each limited-edition Montblanc Statue of Liberty Pen with its bordered citrine, resembles the torch held in the hand of the Statue of Liberty. The torch is also prominently engraved in 18K gold on the rhodium-plated nib of the ink pen.

3. Crown: The cap top of the ink pen is crafted from white gold, and is an ultra-chic version of the seven-pointed crown of The Statue of Liberty. Frédéric Bartholdi had designed the seven-pointed crown to represent the sun, the seven continents, and the seven seas.

Each Montblanc Statue of Liberty Special Edition ink pen is priced at $33,143, and will be available at exclusive Montblanc boutique stores from the 4th of July onwards. As there are only 50 pieces of the limited edition ink pen, it is expected to become a collector’s item in the future.

Montblanc will also be selling exclusive Pablo Picasso ink pens at its boutique stores from September 2012. One Pablo Picasso pen is priced at US $33,800, while the other diamond-studded one is priced at US $55,000. The second Pablo Picasso ink pen is limited to just 39 pieces.

Do you still use a pen, or prefer to type on your computer, laptop or mobile phone? When was the last time you used an ink pen? Would you ever buy such expensive pens?
