    Oh, shoot. I forgot you posted it. I believe the scene was happening in the 1950s Germany....
    SO I doubt if it's Aliexpress or at least I hope not

    I sort of guessed this would be your type of series... You might want to check 1899, if you haven't already...

    Given the intersecting timelines, perhaps the anachronism was deliberate?

    You have point there. Though they really made the effort with the props and setting. You really get a feel of the 80/90s, those awful hairdos, TVs and the rest, ugh... I'm glad it's over
    1899, has truly Tower of Babel feel

    I did a google image search. This might be the second pen:

    Close, but no cigar(-shaped pen).

    The AliExpress pen looks like a better match to me, considering overall shape, clip, number and position of rings, etc.
    Perhaps the props people modified it to remove branding and add more gold trim, or got a variant that's no longer available.

    Here's a very rough side-by-side comparison:

    That looks spot on!
    What I meant was for the pen on the 3rd image. I believe it was the Martha character writing...
    I also noticed that Montlbanc uses a lot of rings in some of their models...

    A distinct fountain pen. I wonder if anyone could identify it?

    ...
    I wondered about that pen too!

    Your post reminds me: I spotted this on AliExpress a while back.

    Not quite the same.
    I bought this pen in chrome in 1980 in the Netherlands. The only difference was branding. Mine does not say Montefiori on it. My original reason for joining a fountain pen forum was to find a nib for it.

    In See How They Run, set in London in 1953, a pen on a film producerís desk is frustratingly out of focus, and partially obscured in the reverse shot.

    Later, in flashback, he uses a completely different pen to sign a contract. Perhaps a slip-cap, based on the way the actor recapped it. Or maybe he was just being careful with the prop.

    This may have been mentioned before: Enola Holmes 2, set in 1888 London, features a number of dip pens, including one used to stab a policeman's hand.

    There are more dip pens in the end credits, as well as a nib-based nickname and an ad for a fountain pen.

    In The Eternal Daughter a mother (Rosalind) and daughter (Julie) use fountain pens to write Christmas cards. Tilda Swinton plays both roles.

    EternalDaughter1.jpg

    EternalDaughter2.jpg

    This movie is a sequel to The Souvenir Parts I and II, set 40 years earlier. In The Souvenir, Tilda Swinton again played the mother, and the younger version of Julie was played by her real-life daughter.

    Julieís distinctive pen grip is consistent across all three movies.

    Souvenir2-1.jpg

    Rosalind is more conventional.

    Was Tang Wei using a hooded nib fountain pen in Decision to Leave? Hard to tell at this distance but I would like to think so.

    Last night I watched the 2022 film "Lou" on Netflix which, according to IMDB, was praised by Stephen King as "Terrific action/suspense... how cool to see a tough older woman kick some serious a$$". As a retired CIA field agent, Allison Janney as "Lou" writes a farewell note/testament using a golden FP with a black section and a nice looking nib. Any ideas as to what pen this is?
