Topics I've Started

My first MB's

04 May 2017 - 10:36 AM

Hello everyone


These are my very first MontBlanc pens.
Green Tiger eye 244
Black 342



Is there a reason / explanation for the differing size and colour of the snowcaps?  I would assume yes, and something akin to the difference in the Pelican design differences of the Pelikan FP's.

Also, any other information regarding the models would be much appreciated. also.

Vintage Japanese brushes and ink sticks in wooden box

I'll walk into the light to allow you to recognise me after such a long time 'down under' in Tasmania.


I have found and purchased this item today, and know little about it at all.... it DID, however, call out to me - hence it is now a new companion.





Can / Does anybody know anything about this, or know of someone who would know something they could tell me about it and it's contents.


In anticipation



Brass Inkwell and Pen Stand

Hello all


Long-time no write / share


A friend of mine that owns an Antique Store, had this come into his hands recently whilst in Victoria.


It is Brass in construction.





The inkwell dome lid is hinged and appears to be a zinc lining and meets the lid cleanly.  I believe there was NOT a porcelain or glass insert, unless it sat below the lip, but then WHY the zinc lining?

The design on both the inkwell and pen stand has very old Dolphins on it.  Helping with the age guess.


Any information greatly appreciated.
