Prices range from 150 to over 2,000, making the selection a delight for collectors or a unique Christmas gift for those who can be difficult to buy for.

LONDON.- A collection of over 64 Limited Editions Montblanc Pens will be offered, fresh to the market, in Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ Fine Pen sale on Thursday 27th November 2014 in London.

Since its beginnings as the Simplo Filler Pen Co. in 1906, Montblanc has become the leading brand of fine pens. Its black and white star logo is recognised as the symbol of craftsmanship and luxury, appealing to collectors across the globe.

In 1992 Montblanc started to produce annual special edition pens in limited numbers, in various series including The Writers Series, The Patron of The Arts Series and the Donation series, as well as very limited numbers produced as 'one off' special editions, which have aroused the interest of collectors and investors.

James Nicholson, International Head of Writing Instruments at Dreweatts said; “Special edition pens, such as these, were made in limited numbers and have become increasingly sought after at specialist Fine Pen auctions is recent years. At Dreweatts we have carved out a niche in this market as one of the few major auctioneers to offer specialist Fine Pen Auctions dedicated to limited edition pens and are delighted to be offering this collection in the run-up to Christmas.”
