For sale is one: Montblanc Meisterstück Hommage à W.A. Mozart Solitaire Fountain Pen in Coral/Gold, 'Bütten Paper' Edition, Medium Nib "M", model 23214; made in France/Germany. Including Service Guide, Solitaire Pamphlet, Gift-Case, and Bütten Paper Envelopes with Sheets. This is a genuine product.
This rare fountain pen is in very good, unused condition. It was acquired from a boutique as a new pen; however, the gold plating is covered in fine micro-scratching. I'm assured it has never been inked, and it does appear to be the case; the nib is in excellent condition. It would seem that the surface scratching was probably caused by a combination of handling and cleaning with either the wrong type of cloth or one that was less than clean. The scratching is not offensive and has the same appearance of a typical Montblanc pen that has been used but not abused. The nib sticker is intact with mild surface wear. The coral finish is in excellent condition. This rare edition includes the 'Bütten paper' handmade paper envelopes and cards, five each. The envelopes and cards are watermarked with the Montblanc snowcap. The outer envelope is slightly off-color from being on display. The plastic cover that retains the papers is also yellowed, save for a diagonal strip where there used to be a satin band describing the contents ('Handcrafted Meister-Bütten 5 cards / 5 envelopes'; since lost and not included). Service guide and pamphlet are in excellent condition. Gift-box is in fairly good condition with some shelving wear. While not 100% perfect, the pen remains very attractive, and looks considerably better in person (gold-plating is not forgiving under the camera). It would make a fine addition to any collection, especially for someone who intends to use it.
The Meisterstück Solitaire Coral Hommage à W.A. Mozart Fountain Pen honors the great composer with a luxurious design that is distinctively Montblanc. It features brass-body construction with gold plating. The body is finished with a special precious red coral lacquer resulting in a gorgeous contrast of marbled red hues. Broad nib is 18k yellow gold. The final touch is the iconic Montblanc white star snowcap.
