A Steel tycoon who emigrated from Scotland to the USA, he was firmly convinced that wealthy people were morally obliged to dedicate themselves to charitable works. So he spent more than 350 million dollars - almost his whole fortune - on cultural foundations, public libraries and cultural programs, and on fostering talented art nouveau artists, the most fashionable artists of the day. This stylish and elegant one of a kind Atelier Prive recalls the artistic style that Carnegie supported so enthusiastically: art nouveau.
The clip of the pen is a graceful female figure, whose wings wrap around the cap of the pen like a butterfly's. The blue lacquer body provides a striking contrast to this delicate fretwork effect in solid 18k white gold. 74kt Sapphires adorn the top cap ring and the bottom barrel ring with the Montblanc star in fine mother-of-pearl. Finished with a rhodium-plated 18 carat gold nib delicately engraved with a lily, a popular art nouveau motif. This masterpiece is in mint perfect condition, complete with all boxes/documents.
