    The rare and coveted Montblanc Compressor - demystified! Well to some extent at least The compressor had a pneumatic filling system that was made for a short time in the 1920s as an alternative to the lever-filler and other more common filling systems. But it wasn’t popular and was soon discontinued. Today, the Compressors are amongst the most desirable pens for vintage MB collectors. Yet, little is known about them because of the scarcity of official documentation. I had questions and so I started piecing together information from books and then reached out to the most renowned experts in the world to fill in the gaps. I hope the resulting article provides a little more clarity on these beautiful pens.

    That is surreal to see a MB of that era in that material--I always love when people share vintage prototypes like this; it gives you a sense for the decisions companies made. (Sometimes to return to, as Pelikan did with the white/tortoise)

    This year, I promised to do more interviews with vintage MB collectors. So, here's one with Christian Ott, to set the ball rolling! Christian has one of the most exceptional collections of vintage Pelikans, and some remarkable Osmia and Sonnecken pens too. Of course, he collects vintage Montblanc pens as well, and these are the focus of the interview. Show and Tell at the link here https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com...-ott-interview

    Check out this beautiful MB No. 6 safety filler from c. 1919. It's black, nothing flashy. But, these designs were so elegant! This particular pen is special because it has the horizontal/cross knurling on its cap top and barrel, which means it was one of the earliest versions of the popular safety. Check it out - https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com/no-6-safety

    I am delighted to share with you one of my most recent acquisitions - a 110 yr old. No. 2 white dome (no star) Montblanc. It's probably one of the first "Montblanc" branded pens made by then Simplo Pen Co. You can read more about its history here -*https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com...o-2-white-dome
    Nothing fancy. Classic, understated, and unpretentious (as my friend KC says).*
    Enjoy!
    P.S. Look forward to some pretty spectacular MB articles over the coming*weeks, and yet another collector interview.*

    I am fascinated with the Spanish-made Montblanc pens from the 1940-50s, with their vibrant “chevron” colours and classic designs! Check out some truly stunning examples and read more about their history, in the latest article on our website -*https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com...hevron-designs
    Many of the pens pictured belong to Jesùs Guillén - the author of “Montblanc Pens Made in Spain”. He has also very kindly helped me write the article. Enjoy!

    Thank you, Sia. As you are aware, pens made of this celluloid are a particular interest of mine, Montblanc being only one example.

    This unique and mysterious Montblanc "Night and Day" overlay safety model from the 1920s looks surprisingly similar to the Waterman safety fillers of the time -*https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com...fety-montblanc

    New article on the 32x series from the 1930s. These modest pens came in lovely colours and had a unique nib. Click here to learn more - https://www.vintagemontblancpens.com/no-322-324-326
