Wild head feathers and a slightly psychotic glint in its eye make this Mont Blanc Mythical Creatures Bird of Paradise our favorite luxury pen of the series. The artists of Meissen base this bird on the Feng-Huang from China. It was the bird of the Empress who symbolized blessings, happiness and peace. Meissen started replicating the splendor of Chinese porcelain in 1710 and created its first Bird of Paradise design on a plate in 1735. Mont Blanc teamed with Meissen to make these beautiful pens. This is the 2005 model, and it appears it was never inked or used. Its 18k gold nib is a medium, and the converter remains free of ink. The pen comes with its complete boxes and a little book.
