The Montblanc Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir "Baby" celebrates the pioneering spirit and rich heritage of the Montblanc maison. Inspired by the original Montblanc "Baby" pens from the 1920s, Montblanc reinterprets the then unexpected design and gives it a modern twist. The name "Baby" playfully describes its small size compared to other Montblanc writing instruments. Created in ivory-colored precious lacquer and with signature gold-coated fittings, it is crowned by a Montblanc emblem in precious resin surrounded by the coral hue of the Montblanc Rouge et Noir collection. With signature gold and/or signature gold-coating, Montblanc describes the enlightened shade of yellow gold which has become an appreciated tone for the Maison's Writing Instruments.
Montblanc's "baby pens" of the 1910s and 1920s were some of the smallest writing instruments of their time - and among the most innovative. Leakproof, travel-sized and easy to use, their forward-thinking design helped to transform the world of writing during a period when people were discovering the joys of mobility on a grand scale. Now, reinterpreted for a new generation, these special editions unite heritage design with 21st century craftsmanship.
In the 1910s and 1920s, the "baby pen" models in Montblanc's safety pen range had a length of 6 to 8 cm. Small in size yet fully functional, these fountain pens were crafted from hard ebonite rubber and equipped with a 14ct gold nib. Ballpoints and rollerballs didn't yet exist, so that the baby pens were a useful companion when out and about that would easily fit in pockets or small handbags.
