The hand-crafted solid gold nib features an engraving of a gargoyle - a sculpture of mythical beast, similar to those found on the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral. Victor Hugo's signature adorns the forepart of the Writer's Edition Homage to Victor Hugo Fountain Pen. The cone of the LE1831 is decorated with an engraved trefoil frieze, which is also part of the architecture of Notre-Dame. The shape of the cone, with a single chain link at the end, recalls the posts to which Quasimodo was chained. The new Writer's Edition Homage to Victor Hugo Fountain Pen is limited to 1831 pieces corresponding to the publication date of his novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
The cap of the fountain pen features numbers 24601 and 9430 - the first and second prisoner numbers received by Jean Valjean, the protagonist of Hugo's historical novel Les Misérables. The cap top is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl. The bicolour nib, handcrafted from Au750 gold, refers to Victor Hugos famous novel Notre-Dame de Paris with a fine engraving of a gargoyle one of the cathedrals grotesque waterspouts. The concerned pen comes in new condition (unused, not inked) with all original boxes, papers and packaging. Ere is how a complete MB WE Collection looks like (1992 2020).
