MONTBLANC Ludovico Sforza Duke of Milan
Patron of Art 4810
Limited Edition: 747/4810
The Limited Edition 4810 Ludovico Sforza, made of black lacquer and adorned with inlays of 925 sterling silver, pays tribute to the Duke of Milan and his court artist, Leonardo da Vinci. The design of the cap-top and the cone is influenced by the striking architecture of the Castello Sforzesco. The lacquer of the writing instrument is decorated with ornaments inspired by the ceiling frescos at Sala delle Asse in Sforza Castle in Milan, which were created by Leonardo. Ludovico Sforza’s family coat of arms served as inspiration for the engraving on the solid 750 gold nib.The cap ring with its embossments is reminiscent of the “testone”, a silver coin of the Italian Renaissance minted in honour of Ludovico Sforza.
The concerned pen has never been inked nor used. Inner illustrated box, black lacquered wood display box, booklet & service guide in folder.
