MontBlanc has released the MontBlanc Statue of Liberty Artisan Edition writing instrument as a tribute to the Statue of Liberty, the neoclassical sculpture that symbolizes the freedom of America. The beautifully crafted fountain pen has design elements inspired by the elements of the majestic sculpture, featuring 750 solid gold fittings, a barrel engraved with the official date of the American Independence Declaration in roman letters which adds archaic charm to it. It also has an artistic cap which symbolizes the crown of the statue.
The clip has been designed to form a torch embellished with a citrin jewel and a mother-of-pearl Montblanc emblem gracefully perched on the apex of the fountain pen. The Montblanc Statue of Liberty Artisan Edition will be available from the 4th of July 2012 in a limited edition of only 50 units worldwide. The beautiful writing instrument retails for £21,000 ($33,143)
