Greta Garbo – in honour of a charismatic, glamorous personality
In its elegant but individual design, the exclusive Special Edition Greta Garbo reflects the beauty and independent nature of the great Hollywood star. Graceful writing instruments in three different designs, from noble to glamorous, continue the myth of Greta Garbo.
Homage to Greta Garbo – the great prima donna of film history
Greta Garbo, known as "The Divine", enthralled her public with her charisma and her dark, unmistakable voice. In only a few years, the Swedish actress became an acclaimed world star with films like "Anna Karenina", "Mata Hari" and "Grand Hotel". Her natural beauty and her cool, inaccessible manner made her one of the most coveted and mysterious women of the 20th century. When only 36 she said goodbye to the silver screen for ever and so became a myth which has made her unforgotten until today.
With Greta Garbo, the first Edition especially developed for the female target group, the Montblanc brand is expressing its respect for an important woman whose radiance reached far beyond the glamorous world of Hollywood. Her style, her demeanour and her actions showed the self-confidence of a modern and imperturbable personality who set her own standards. Greta Garbo, born 100 years ago on 18 September 1905, inspired Montblanc to capture the aura of this unique woman and express it by means of a Special Edition dedicated to her.
Greta Garbo Special Edition
Three different models reflect the charisma of the great film prima donna. The Greta Garbo Special Edition shows a stunning contrast with a cream-coloured cap which curves slightly inwards and which in its elegant line is harmoniously complemented in the jet-black body. An eye-catching feature of this variant, as with all others of the Special Edition, is the individual design of the handmade 18-carat gold nib as well as the extravagant clip, embellished with a white Akoya pearl. In addition, all three cartridge fountain pens - as also the ballpoint pen, which is only available in the Greta Garbo Special Edition - bear Greta Garbo´s engraved signature as a reference to the legendary eponym.
Greta Garbo 1905 Commemoration Edition
The Greta Garbo 1905 Commemoration Edition honours the internationally celebrated film beauty´s year of birth: a model with a rather longer body, completely in black and sterling silver. Especially the design of the cap reflects the strong character of the actress: the contours are straight, the black rectangular lacquer inlays suggestive, the clip-ring - studded with 16 diamonds - radiant. The crowning feature of the fountain pens in this Edition, the number of which is strictly limited to 1905, is a mother-of-pearl inlay on the flattened cap top - the legendary Montblanc star.
Greta Garbo 100 Year Anniversary Edition
The most exclusive variant in this Montblanc Edition embodies the fame and glamour of Hollywood: the Greta Garbo 100 Limited Edition. The colouring alone makes the writing instrument glitter like a star in a blaze of flashlights. The slim body, shaped like that of the Commemoration Edition, shines in solid 750 rose gold, while the rectangular inlays in this fountain pen´s cap are of gleaming mother of pearl. But the really luxurious feature of the Greta Garbo 100 Limited Edition are the rings of diamonds, set in 750 white gold, which encircle the cap and the body with more than 1.6 carats. As a reference to the 100th birthday of the "Queen of Hollywood", as Orson Welles once called her, these exceptional writing jewels, which are highly coveted by collectors, are available in a limited edition of only 100 pieces worldwide.
