Hommage à Andrew Carnegie
Andrew Carnegie is one of the finest examples of the great American success story. The son of a poor Scottish immigrant, he became a millionaire steel magnate through a combination of luck, skill and hard work. Despite his fabulous wealth, his whole life was influenced by the privations of a childhood spent in poverty. Andrew Carnegie was firmly convinced that wealthy people were morally obliged to dedicate themselves to charitable works. So, he spent 350 million dollars – almost his whole fortune – on cultural foundations, public libraries and cultural programmes.
Dedicated to one of the greatest patrons of modern times, this stylish and elegant 4810 PoA Hommage à Andrew Carnegie recalls the artistic style that Carnegie supported so enthusiastically: Art Nouveau. This magnificent resin pen is graced with an exquisite sterling silver Art Nouveau-inspired lattice-work, finished with an elegant clip in the shape of a rather sensual winged nymph. Surely one of Montblanc’s most beautiful creations from 4810 Patron of Arts Series.
This particular pen is in new old stock condition. It has never been used, and still comes with the original nib size sticker. It also comes with the presentation box, outer decorative sleeve, and papers.
