Featuring a body carved from sterling silver and eyes of red garnets, the vermillion dragon is a ferocious symbol of fire, light and hope, also known to many as the god of fire. Coiling its serpentine body around the entirety of the writing instrument, the Ag 925 sterling silver barrel has the dragon's lower half engraved underneath a translucent lacquer. 

With only 88 pieces, referenced from the lucky number 8 in Chinese culture, this exquisite fountain pen is crowned with the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl, inlayed in black onyx and covered with a piece of sapphire glass.
