Vintage "Montblanc 224" Fountain Pen-Matt Black/Matt Gold-14K Nib-Germany 1970s. Back in 1906 a Hamburg banker, Alfred Nehemias and a Berlin engineer, August Eberstein recognised the signs of time and decided to produce simplicissimus pens.After a short period of time Wilhelm Dziambor, Christian Lausen and later Claus Johannes Voss took over the business and thus laid the foundation for the future internationally successful company Montblanc. Their first model was the "Rouge et Noir" in 1909 followed in 1910 by the pen that was later to give the company its new name: "Montblanc". The name Meisterstück ("Masterpiece" for export) was used for the first time in 1924, for the top lines of fountain pens. The number "4810, " the mountain's height in meters, is also a commonly recurring theme. Colour: matt black barrel with matt gold-plated cap. Cap ring imprint: Montblanc 224 Germany. Nib material: 14 karat gold. I reckon the nib size is extra fine.
Size capped: approximately 5.2. Technical condition: the piston-filling mechanism is in working order.
Optical condition: shows traces of wear. The tip of the nib is not 100% straight (photo 3). Comes with a Diamine "Roasted Chestnut" ink sample. Please enlarge all of the photos and make up your own mind of the overall condition.
