Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Montblanc Meisterstuck 744 Rolled Gold Barley Grain d’Orge Fountain Pen, which comes with its Montblanc presentation box. The pen is presented in overall excellent condition, especially considering its 70 year age! There is some staining to the snowcap emblem, but this doesn’t detract from what is a lovely pen.
The 744 was produced between 1951-56, before than moving to a wing style nib between 1957-59. This was a domestic German market pen, hence the Meisterstuck cap band engraving, rather than the Masterpiece export version.
It’s easy to forget vintage pens like this, when the modern Montblanc lineup is so varied and interesting. But these early post-war pens are fantastic and the 744 has an almost 149 like feel about it, with its telescopic piston mechanism, ski-slope feed and 14c broad (not the broadest of broads!) nib.
The important details are as follows…
14c Bi-Tone Broad Nib
Montblanc Telescopic Piston Filling System
Montblanc Presentation Box included
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”.
With these rarely being offered for sale, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a vintage example, at a great price.
