Vintage "Montblanc Caressa" Fountain Pen-Matt Black/ Brushed Steel-Germany 1970s:
Vintage "Montblanc Caressa" Fountain Pen-Matt Black/ Brushed Steel-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.A trademark identified with Montblanc is the white star with rounded edges, representative of the Mont Blanc snow cap from above, the symbol being adopted in 1913. The number "4810," the mountain's height in meters, is also a commonly recurring theme.
