The Patron of Art Edition Marquise de Pompadour honours a captivating personality and an outstanding historical figure. The splendid gold-plated barrel and mountings of Edition 4810 represent the luxury of court life at Versailles. The cap, made of fine Meissen porcelain and decorated with a hand-painted, sepiacoloured rose finished in gold, recalls the Marquise’s love of porcelain. As a tribute to the age in which she lived, the 18-karat gold nib is decorated by a delicate engraving typical of the rococo style.
Edition 888 pays a special tribute to the Marquise de Pompadour: both the cap of this fine pen – which is lovingly decorated with a hand-painted motif of the Marquise – and the barrel, which is also hand-painted with a delicate pattern of flowers, are made of Meissen porcelain.
All mountings in this Limited Edition are of 750 solid gold.
