Front Runners August 2015: Writing the High Note

The most exclusive piece in the new collection honoring the Italian tenor, the Montblanc Patron of Art Luciano Pavarotti Limited Edition 98 (montblanc.com) sports a red-lacquer guilloche barrel overlaid with an 18-karat-gold skeletonized depiction of a Chinese dragon. The design is a reference to Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot, which is set in ancient China and is the source of Pavarotti’s signature aria, “Nessun dorma.” A jasmine flower carved from white jade is mounted on the top of the cap, and an engraved image of Pavarotti adorns the 18-karat-gold nib. The pen will be limited to 98 pieces—a nod to the year that Pavarotti received the Grammy Legend Award.
