The Montblanc Solitaire Serpent Limited Edition 1906 is fully platinum-coated


With its elegant all-metal appearance, the inspiration behind Montblanc’s Solitaire Serpent Limited Edition 1906 is a historical Montblanc metal and gold writing instrument from the 1922-1932 period. The original writing instrument featured a barrel and cap made from chased silver. The chasing technique is used on this latest limited edition, intricately decorated with a magnificent serpent engraved on the platinum-coated metal surface.

Born from traditional silverware craftsmanship nurtured in Montblanc’s ateliers, the surface is worked by hand by indenting it using shaped tracing tolls and a chasing hammer. The serpent clip with its garnet eyes and champagne tone gold-coated fittings contrast with the brushed platinum-coated surface of the writing instrument.

A recurring motif during the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period, the mysterious creature pays tribute to a 1920s pen clip design. The diamond-shaped head of the Art Nouveau serpent is engraved on the 18K bi-colour nib, while the Montblanc emblem is set in coral colour precious resin on the cap top. Limited to 1906 pieces in reference to the year Montblanc was founded, the Solitaire Serpent is available as both a Fountain Pen and a Rollerball.

When “Rouge et Noir” made its debut in 1909, Montblanc’s first ever fountain pen series stylized the world of writing with its distinctive black ebonite body and red cap top. Inspired by the famous novel by Stendhal, the innovative writing instrument was regarded as an outstanding technical achievement because it ensured simple operation without the need for dipping the nib into an inkwell.
