Henri de TOULOUSE LAUTREC MOULIN ROUGE 99
ARTISAN - ATELIERS PRIVÉSSKELETONLIMITED EDITION 2015

The grid pattern of the windmill arms provided the inspiration for the design of the skeletonised upper part of the cap, which reveals a view into the heart of the writing instruments: the gold nib. Below the skeletonised part, the cap is hand-painted to resemble a corset with small waist and seductive curves in red precious lacquer. With its ruffle-like guilloche under the black translucent lacquer, the barrel is inspired by the petticoats worn by the cancan dancers.

A red garnet (0.84ct) is set in the cone of this MB limited edition Artisan pen shaped in the reference to the shoes worn by the legendary Moulin Rouge dancers. A MB emblem in mother-of-pearl adorns the cap top.

In homage to the great artist of the Moulin Rouge in Paris, a fine engraving of his signature bowler hat and pince-nez is found on the handcrafted 750 solid gold...
