Sumptuous Vintage Montblanc Pen

On offer. A fully restored Montblanc Meisterstuck 142 Piston Filling Fountain Pen which was manufactured in post war Germany, between 1948 to 1954.

This pen incorporates a telescopic piston filling mechanism. This principle was first introduced in 1937, and provides greater ink space. The ink capacity in the barrel is at least twice that of a similar sized pen having a normal one spindle mechanism.

The Montblanc 140 series was made up of three pens ( Nos. 142, 144 and 146). This the 142 was the smallest and less-common model in Montblanc's post-war Meisterstuck line. We believe it is superior to today's models due to its filling mechanism and use of celluloid resin (more substantial feel and greater resistance to cracking). In addition, the nibs of this period are far better than today's.

The original and correct nib on this particular 142 is a 14ct gold (585) oblique broad, being smooth and nicely flexible.
