Era: 1980-present
Price: $1,499.99
Cerberus was the ancient Greek hellhound who guarded the gates of the underworld. He happily ushered in new souls, but he was vicious in his duties denying exit to the souls that had crossed the threshold into the underworld. Many ancient civilizations dating back more than 6,000 years had similar dogs with similar duties. The Mont Blanc Mythical Creatures Cerberus pays tribute to the Greek monster in Asian fashion. One of only 300 pens made, this very limited Mont Blanc features a gold-plated barrel and a porcelain cap created by the legendary Meissen porcelain craftsman in Germany. One of the company's original designs from around 1725 serves as a foundation for this 2008 model. Stickered, new-old-stock, this pen seems never have been used. It comes complete with its boxes, book and unused converter.
