Beyond his musical virtuosity, Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007) was celebrated for his unique extravagances, now captured in the Montblanc Patron of Art Luciano Pavarotti Limited Edition. As a writing tribute to the Italian tenor, the black lacquered barrel and white lacquer cap of the Limited Edition 4810 represent the black tuxedo Pavarotti wore with a white bow tie and shirt for his concerts.
The delicate red lacquer floral pattern that adorns the cone and the turquoise resin cabochon at the base are reminiscent of the Hawaiian shirts he wore off stage. Its gold-plated clip is in the shape of another trademark item – one of his extravagant scarves is elegantly wrapped around the cap.
