Montblanc Solitaire Serpent Limited Edition 1906

With styling that would look right at home on the blotter of a bond villain's desk, Montblanc's Solitaire Serpent Limited Edition 1906 is a snake-wrapped, metal encased pen that recalls a design from the '20s and '30s. Originally crafted in chased silver, the chasing technique is resurrected with a serpent that's hand-etched into the platinum-coated surface. The serpent wrapped around the cap is also detailed with garnet eyes and the theme extends all the way down to the pen nib, which is engraved with the head of a snake.
