Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Writers Limited Edition Marcel Proust Fountain Pen, which comes with its book style box (including outer), information brochure and stamped information booklet – confirming first purchase on 30th October 1999. The pen has never been used and is presented in wonderful condition – the M sticker, confirming a medium nib, can still be found on the piston cone. Only 21000 pens were produced and this is number 09069.

 

 

Every year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 1999 it was Marcel Proust and in the years following its release, it has taken on legendary status. The eight-sided barrel is engraved in a style that reflects the time when Proust was at his most creative. His signature can also be found engraved as part of the design.

 

 

The cap, piston cone and grip section are crafted from black resin, with the trim being sterling silver – we’ve lightly polished the silver, as some customers prefer the patina that silver takes on when it ages. If you’d like us to polish it further, please just let us know upon purchase.

 

 

The 18k medium nib features a fine engraving of an hour glass. The pen is a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.

With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
