Montblanc dedicates latest pen to Steinway
17 July 2014
Montblanc has created a special fountain pen in honour of piano maker Henry E Steinway.
German-born Heinrich Engelhard Steinway (1797-1871) built his first pianos in his kitchen, before moving to the US to establish the now world-famous brand.
Available in two editions, the pen – or writing instrument, as Montblanc refers to its products – features the distinctive black and gold colour combination of a classic Steinway grand piano. The shape of the gold-plated clip references the once-patented screw clamps used for bending the grand piano rim into its distinctive sweeping curve. The gold nib is decorated with a filigree portrait of Steinway himself.
London’s Steinway Hall hosted a private reception to mark the occasion, featuring a recital given by Charles Owen, a Steinway artist.
The Steinway pen is part of Montblanc’s Patron of Art series, which launched in 1992. Prices available upon request.
