SOLD: 21 Pen Box: Montecristo “Le Cigar des Arts Royale” with Michael Delacroix Artwork

Michael Delacroix art

For the Millenium, Montecristo commissioned artist Michael Delacroix to create a series of scenes of Havana and Paris.  These drawings appeared on specially-made cigar boxes of dramatic proportions for a limited time.  In the past few years, I have gathered four of the boxes, but because of their unusual size, I was puzzled as to the best way to fit them to hold fountain pens.

Recently, I accepted an order for one of the boxes and that forced me to figure out a good inside configuration.  The result is pictured below, with a total capacity of 21 pens, 13 sitting vertically across the front and 8 horizontally in the back of the box.

The 13 front slots accommodate pens of up to 5 1/2 inches in length and the 8 back slots hold pens of up to 6 inches. And, if you require longer pen slots, I can arrange the front 13 to be about 6 1/2 inches and reduce the back slots from 8 to 6 for a total of 19 pens.

The pen compartments can be either black or red, the burgundy pictured is not available.

The Montecristo box measures 13 1/2 inches by 11 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches.  These boxes are currently selling on ebay for $20 to $40 empty.

The Montecristo “Le Cigar des Arts Royale” 21 Pen Box is priced at $95 plus shipping.  SOLD If you are interested, please email me at and include your location or ZIP Code for a shipping cost quote.
