A tribute to the grand master of piano manufacturing, Montblanc’s Patron of Art Edition Henry E. Steinway is inspired by the man who revolutionized the world of music, dedicating his life to the advancement of the arts. German-born Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (1797 – 1871) built his first pianos in his kitchen, before immigrating to the United States to set up one of the greatest legacies in modern music history. With his countless patents, Steinway pioneered the modern piano and set the high standards that still prevail in piano manufacturing today.
The design of the writing instrument is masterfully shaped by Steinway’s vision, celebrating both his remarkable piano innovations, and his outstanding contribution as an influential patron of the arts. He supported many artists through the Steinway Artists’ Programme that still promotes musicians today, and he made music accessible to large audiences at the Steinway Hall, once New York City’s largest concert venue.
Created with traditional manufacturing techniques and the quest for perfection in Montblanc’s Atelier in Hamburg the Montblanc Patron of Art Edition Henry E. Steinway 4810 features the distinctive black and gold colour combination of a classic Steinway grand piano, with the barrel in deep black lacquer and gold-plated fittings. The fountain pen’s cap is decorated with the heart of the iconic music instrument – the harp, or overstrung piano. Hidden inside the piano, these strings play a central role in producing the instrument’s unmistakable sound, much like Steinway’s discreet role in shaping modern music history.
The shape of the gold-plated clip references the once-patented screw clamps used for bending the grand piano rim into its distinctive sweeping curve. The name “Steinway & Sons”, found above the keyboard of every piano produced by Steinway, is immortalised as a fine engraving on the gold-plated cone ring, while the 750 gold nib is intricately engraved with a portrait of Henry E. Steinway himself, capturing the noble aspects of his character: determination, perfectionism and passion. The Montblanc emblem in black and white precious resin crowns the fountain pen.
With every design detail, Montblanc’s limited edition writing instrument captures the remarkable achievements and personality of Henry E. Steinway: the father of the grand piano, and undoubtedly one of the great patrons of the arts. Restricted to 4810 pieces, representing the height of the Mont Blanc mountain in metres, the Patron of Art Limited Edition 4810 fountain pen is now available.
