This is an interesting pen. It was made by the Excelsior Pen Company in Germany in the early 1970's. Excelsior were a direct subsidiary of Montblanc and so this pen has an extremely good pedigree.
The pen was aimed at the student market and is made from Teal Blue plastic with a chromed cap and gold coloured trim. The pen is in effect brand new, it has never been inked and has been stored in the manufacturers original pack since it was made. It is a Piston Filler, very similar to most of the European pens.
The nib is an extra fine but regular users report that the nib broadens out slightly with use. The nibs are very smooth and write really well.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a good quality Piston filling fountain pen with an excellent pedigree at a reasonable price. The pen is available in 4 colours, Dark Grey, Maroon, Teal Blue and Sea Green. This pen is the Teal Blue version. The other colours are available as seperate listings while stocks last.
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
