30 Pieces – Years 2003 – 2012 – Rare is an understatement


A masterly series for Connoisseurs and Collectors of exquisite orininals.

Up for bid is a rare and complete collection (full set) of Limited Edition Montblanc Annual Edition. Since 2003, Montblanc has issued three new writing instruments a year in the Annual Edition range, each of which was only available for a year in a limited edition of 300 pieces. Made of the finest Meissen porcelain, the caps are decorated by hand-painted images.Each cap is decorated with both the crossed blue swords – the symbol of Meissen porcelain manufacture – and the year of the edition. Each porcelain cap is one of its kind, if damaged it can be repaired, but it cannot be replaced. The gold-plated, guilloche-style barrel and the specific 4810 nib made of 18-karat gold perfect this edition of exquisite writing instruments. The Annual Edition from Montblanc is a tribute to the culture of days gone by and a joy for collectors of exquisite writing instruments.

The Montblanc annual Edition is a collector’s series made of white Meissen porcelain featuring carefully hand-painted motifs from the legendary world of Classical Myths”, the magical atmosphere of the “Venetian Carnival” and the fantastic realm of “Mythical Creatures”. Each year, between 2003 and 2012, Montblanc used new images to illustrate the universe of Venetian carnival, ancien mythology and the realm of fabled creatures, creating a harmonious Collection of exquisite writing instruments.
