Montblanc Meisterstück 146 LeGrand Barley Gold Solitaire Fountain Pen, which comes with it’s black Montblanc presentation box including branded outer and unstamped paperwork. The pen has never been used and is presented in essentially as new condition – it was presented as a gift back in 1991 and simply stored away since then. To make this even rarer, it features a 18k monotone fine nib.
As mentioned, this particular pen is the much rarer barley gold version, which was only available up until the beginning of the 90’s. The barrel and cap of the pen are brass which is then gold plated and this was the case from around 1970 – 1990. In my opinion these solitaire pens elevate the usual look of the standard resin offerings to another level. The intricate barley detailing is beautiful and the gold trim provides a brightness but at the same time never a brash look.
As with all other 146’s, this is a piston filling pen, so it’s bottled ink all the way!
This pen features both W.Germany and serial number markings, making it extremely simple to date. This combination only appeared in 1991, give or take a couple of months either way.
This is a truly wonderful example of a pen that’s now getting increasingly difficult to find in unused condition. We know that you can find cheaper examples, in fact a quick search will probably locate you one, but the person that buys this is getting a pen that can either be placed away as part of a wider collection or inked and enjoyed from day one.
