For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Near Mint in the Box 1999 Writer's Series Montblanc Marcel Proust Fountain Pen Limited Edition 10960/21000. This pen comes with the original inner and out boxes and Montblanc documentation.
This Montblanc Limited Edition Writers Series Edition is known as the Marcel Proust Fountain Pen. The trim is made of 925 sterling silver, as is the eight-sided barrel, which features fine engravings in the style typical of Proust’s main creative period. The hexagonal barrel also bears the engraved signature of the writer from which it takes its name. The top of the cap is surmounted by the ivory-coloured Montblanc star. The 18K two-tone gold nib features the engraving of an hourglass, a reference to his greatest work, "À la recherche du temps perdu". The end of the fountain pen remains the original "Medium" nib sticker.
The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The sterling silver trim is excellent and has been polished to shine brightly. The fountain pen measures 5 3/8" capped and 5 3/4" 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 two-tone nib has an hourglass engraving and is marked. "4810, 18K/750, Montblanc Logo, 1999, MONTBLANC". This nib is designated as a MEDIUM and the point measures .79mm 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 10960 out of 21000.
Marcel Proust, one of the most popular French authors and philosophers of his time, fascinated readers with his books and their brilliantly observed descriptions of people and nature, and, as a charismatic figure of the fine Paris salons, he also delighted people with his rhetoric and wit.
This Montblanc Marcel Proust 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 stock on the pen along with all the boxes and literature that originally came with this fountain pen. This will be a marvelous addition to your Montblanc Writer's Series arsenal collection.
