For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Near Mint in the Box 1996 Writers Series Montblanc Alexandre Dumas Fountain Pen Limited Edition 8144/20000. This pen comes with the original inner and out boxes and Montblanc documentation. This is the Alexandre Dumas Fountain Pen with the incorrect signature version that were made early on in the production cycle making it a very rare type.
Alexandre Dumas was one of the most important novelists and playwrights of the 19th century. He knew better than anyone how to combine effective dialogue, dramatic tension and lucid description in gripping stories. His intellectually stimulating and ambitious works still captivate a large readership all over the world – Dumas wrote nearly 300 novels, including such world-renowned classics as “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”.
The cap is adorned with gold-plated fittings and due to a research error, Montblanc produced a small number of pens with the signature of his son, also named Alexandre. Montblanc recalled all unsold pens bearing the incorrect signature however some were still sold. This is an extremely rare fountain pen because of this error in signatures.
The design of the pen incorporates subtle references to his works including a clip in the form of a sword and the cap ring adorned with a French lily. One thing neat about this piece is that the fountain pen comes with a huge nib (same size as on the 149 Diplomat size pens), larger than all the other Writer Series nibs (except the Hemingway.)
This Alexandre Dumas is a limited edition number, "8144/20000".
The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The gold plated trim trim is excellent and has been polished to shine brightly. The fountain pen measures 5 3/8" capped and 6 3/8" posted.
This Montblanc fountain pen uses a piston filling system and I have tested with water and works as it was designed to. I have cleaned the inside of the barrel and greased the piston for smooth operation.
The 18-karat, rhodium-plate nib has a Fleur-de-lis motif and is marked. "4810, 18K/750, Montblanc Logo, 1996, MONTBLANC". This nib is designated as a MEDIUM and the point measures .83mm when using digital calipers.
Accompanying this fountain pen is the original Montblanc box, outer storage factory box, International Service Certificate, Reply Card, and Limited Edition Booklet. This is a Limited Edition Montblanc with a production number of 8144 out of 20000.
This Montblanc Alexandre Dumas Fountain Pen is a very stunning writing instrument crafted in Germany. I would consider this Montblanc Limited Edition Fountain Pen is in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. The pen has been inked, displays very little wear, and still retains the original boxes and literature that originally came with this fountain pen. The error signature really makes this fountain pen and rare speciman for the collector. This will be a marvelous addition to your Montblanc Writers Series arsenal collection.
