Following their collaboration with Meissen porcelain, Montblanc is proud to present the exceptional Montblanc Masters for Meisterstück LʼAubrac writing instruments in tribute to the excellence of Forge de Laguiole knives, crafted in the LʼAubrac region of southern France.
The Atelier Privé Edition, priced at £43,000 ($68,000), is limited to only 8 pieces, and is interpreted in ebony wood, intricately carved in a three-dimensional pineapple pattern – a traditional Laguiole motif and one of the most challenging to create – each facet of which is then set with a brilliant diamond.
The Masters for Meisterstück L‘Aubrac Artisan Edition at £17,200 ($27,200) is restricted to just 50 pieces, and has been manufactured from Brazilian precious wood enhanced by finely chiselled 18-carat white gold inlays that pay tribute to the traditional craft techniques used by Forge de Laguiole. This refined interpretation of the Meisterstück LeGrand fountain pen is completed by an 18-carat gold nib and a Montblanc Diamond on the cap.
The Montblanc Masters for Meisterstück LʼAubrac Special Edition, priced at £1,680.00 ($2,650) comprises a Meisterstück LeGrand Fountain Pen crafted from exotic grenadilla wood, which is highly prized for its beautiful fine grain and lustrous waxed finish. The cap and barrel are enhanced by tiny sterling silver rivets inspired by the handles of Forge de Laguiole knives, while the silver cap rings are decorated with a heritage Laguiole motif alongside the Montblanc signature. An 18-carat gold nib on the Fountain Pen and the Montblanc star emblem in mother-of-pearl finish these elegant writing instruments. This model is not restricted in quantity.
The Montblanc Masters for Meisterstück LʼAubrac writing instruments will be available from Montblanc boutiques as of October 2012 on a very limited basis.
