Hepworth Comment
 
This Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 in black precious resin, is a majestic fountain pen, built to the highest German standards. The original design dates back to the late 1940’s. Due to specification modifications over the years, we are able to date this particular pen to circa 1985. This would have been one of the last 149’s to incorporate an ebonite split ink feeder.
