Fascinating Gold


MONTBLANC No 4 in Octogonal Solid Gold 585 version over BHR





Period of production between 1924-1929


This is one of the rarest pens, I have found so far. The wonderfully Montblanc octogonal 585 Gold version signed by Sarastro are among the most sought after pens.


It is made from Black Hard Rubber (BHR) with solid gold overlay.


8 sided, barleycorn with rhomboid pattern.


Cap imprints : Beside the hallmarks for the 585 Gold version there is the "S", showing that this pen is made from the Goldsmith Sarastro.


Name of the previous owner engraved on the cap.


Blind cap marked #4-F


Big Montblanc top white cap star with pin.


4 vents holes on the cap.


Montblanc 14 C Montblanc 585 round hole nib.


Length is 11,5 cm (4.53 inches) when cap is closed.


Filling mechanism: Safety filler


The overall condition of the pen is excellent, with some light traces of use due to the age. The Solid Gold overlay carries small light impacts, most of them located on the barrel (see pictures). The safety mechanism works. Pen will probably need a new rubber seal.

     Wallrafen, Stefan & Jens Rösler. Collectible Stars I: Montblanc 1908-1947. [Koln: 2004], pp. 66-67, where a #4 safety silver 8 sided, barleycorn with rhomboid pattern is depicted (scarcity rating of 11 on a 12-point scale).
