Trending Arts & Culture: Montblanc Patron of Art Homage to Ludwig II
King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the Swan King, was a devoted patron of the arts, so it’s only natural that Montblanc would create an incredibly artistic limited-edition writing instrument to honor him. Its cap is adorned with translucent lacquer and an intricate guilloche design representing the white feathers of a swan, and the champagne gold-coated clip shows the swan’s graceful neck and head. The pen’s solid gold nib features an engraving of the fairy tale Neuschwanstein castle.

It owes its name to Gabrielle Chanel’s first love, English polo player Boy Capel. Oh, boy, what a tribute.
