In the 1910s and 1920s, the ‘baby pen’ models in Montblanc’s safety pen range had a length of 6 to 8 cm, making them some of the smallest writing instruments of their time – and among the most innovative. Small in size yet fully functional, these fountain pens were crafted from hard ebonite rubber and equipped with a 14ct gold nib. Ballpoints and rollerballs didn’t yet exist, so that the baby pens were a useful companion when out and about that would easily fit in pockets or small handbags. Leakproof, travel-sized and easy to use, their forward-thinking design helped to transform the world of writing during a period when people were discovering the joys of mobility on a grand scale.
Now, reinterpreted for a new generation, these special editions unite heritage design with 21st century craftsmanship.
The Montblanc Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir "Baby" celebrates the pioneering spirit and rich heritage of the Montblanc maison. Inspired by the original Montblanc "Baby" pens, Montblanc reinterprets the then unexpected design and gives it a modern twist. The name "Baby" playfully describes its small size compared to other Montblanc writing instruments. Created in black precious lacquer and with platinum-coated fittings, it is crowned by a Montblanc emblem in precious ivory-hued resin surrounded by the iconic coral of the Montblanc Rouge et Noir collection.
