The true artisan versions, like Fabergé eggs, are handcrafted, highly sought after and meant to be handed down to future generations. In the 1920s, the world was agog over Harold Carter’s discovery of King Tut’s tomb. In celebration of this event, Montblanc introduced the Egyptian Fountain Pen inspired by the Boy King. These pens are now valued similarly to Tut’s possessions. A hundred years later, the firm has resurrected the design via the Montblanc Heritage Egyptomania Collection. Consisting of 5 exquisite writing instruments, each is housed in a casing resembling a sarcophagus. Each are worthy of Tut, featuring incredibly detailed examples of stone setting, engraving and goldsmithing. This collection is limited to one set, priced at a princely $2.2 million, with other designs in the six-figure price range; Montblanc.com.
