Drawing inspiration from Montblanc’s innovative ‘baby’ pens of the 1910s and 1920s, this collection celebrates the pioneering writing instruments of Maison’s early years. These elegant writing instruments are characterised by the minimalist aesthetic embodied in these small yet elegant forms, while heritage colours, materials, and details echo Montblanc’s inaugural designs.The Montblanc Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir “Baby” celebrates the pioneering spirit and rich heritage of the Montblanc maison. Inspired by the original Montblanc “Baby” pens from the 1920´s, Montblanc reinterprets the then unexpected design and gives it a modern twist. The name “Baby” playfully describes its small size compared to other Montblanc writing instruments. Created in black precious lacquer and with platinum-coated fittings, it is crowned by a Montblanc emblem in precious resin surrounded by the iconic coral hue of the Montblanc Rouge et Noir collection. The handcrafted Au 585 solid gold nib features a drawing of the Mont Blanc mountain.Montblanc’s ‘baby pens’ of the 1910s and 1920s were some of the smallest writing instruments of their time – and among the most innovative. Leakproof, travel-sized and easy to use, their forward-thinking design helped to transform the world of writing during a period when people were discovering the joys of mobility on a grand scale. Now, reinterpreted for a new generation, these special editions unite heritage design with 21st century craftsmanship.
In the 1910s and 1920s, the ‘baby pen’ models in Montblanc’s safety pen range had a length of 6 to 8 cm. Small in size yet fully functional, these fountain pens were crafted from hard ebonite rubber and equipped with a 14ct gold nib. Ballpoints and rollerballs didn’t yet exist, so that the baby pens were a useful companion when out and about that would easily fit in pockets or small handbags.In tribute to early pen designs, the Montblanc emblem is crafted in ivory-hued resin surrounded by resin in a heritage coral colour.
In addition to a heritage nib fountain pen, the collection includes both rollerball and ballpoint designs, allowing you to choose the right pen for your writing style.To complement their small, slim size, these writing instruments are designed without a clip to enhance their minimalist aesthetic.
