NOTE: In Chinese culture, the dragon is a symbol of the imperial family. The year 2000 was the "Year of the Golden Dragon", as it was ruled by the element "Metal", which is also associated with gold. This combination only occurs once every 60 years, making it a powerful and significant event.
To pay tribute to Chinese culture, Montblanc and the German Porcelain maker, Meissen, collaborated to create the "Year of the Golden Dragon - Limited Edition 888" fountain pen. This exquisite pen is made of hand-painted Meissen porcelain with only 888 fountain pens available worldwide.
The fountain pen features a hand-painted dragon on the cap and is made of the finest Meissen porcelain in traditional Chinese colors. The 18K gold nib is engraved with Chinese characters for the Year of the Dragon, which is a symbol of happiness and success. This fountain pen celebrates Chinese culture and tradition.
