Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Meisterstück 144 Classique 75th Anniversary Sterling Silver Pinstripe Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with a standard Montblanc presentation box (including outer). The pen has never been used and is presented in wonderful condition. Only 1924 were produced and this is number 1170.
The 75th anniversary writing instruments were released in 1999 to commemorate 75 years of the Meisterstuck range (launched in 1924). There were two main editions available, one being the unlimited yellow gold ‘special edition’ pens and then the rose gold ‘limited edition’ pens, of which only 1924 examples were produced. This is the delightful solitaire limited edition, which is crafted from sterling silver, with rose gold-plated trim. The iconic Montblanc snowcap is crafted from mother-of-pearl.
To distinguish these anniversary editions from the usual offerings, you’ll find a second gold band around the top of the clip, in which is mounted a diamond and the inscription ’75 years of passion and soul’ – with the diamond being the ‘o’ in passion.
The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a cartridge / converter (supplied), so you have the best of both worlds when it comes to ink.
The important details are as follows…
Standard Montblanc Presentation Box
With every writing instrument 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”.
