No doubts, one of the best looking pens I know (and happily own…). The mixed colours of the resin, the fine filigree of the golden laths, the almost black cap and cone, the sober and yet beautifully engraved nib: anything in this pen is almost perfect to my eyes. She looks elegantly chic on my wood desk and she probably the most eye-catching of my small collection. So I thought to share mi enthusiastic views it with you, this time with some grapes.

Either the pen(albeit absolutely beautiful) is tiny or those delicious looking grapes are humongous! :blink:

Thanks for sharing.

Fully agree with you!
The details and the size of this pen are just it.

I love the marble effect WE pens: Dumas, Poe and Fitzgerald (and to a lesser extent the Wilde).

I find myself constantly rotating them in my hand so as to see the different shares and the way the light reflects.

My Collection:
Montblanc Writers Edition: Hemingway, Christie, Wilde, Voltaire, Dumas, Dostoevsky, Poe, Proust, Schiller, Dickens, Fitzgerald (set), Verne, Kafka, Cervantes, Woolf, Faulkner, Shaw, Mann, Twain, Collodi, Swift, Balzac, Defoe & Tolstoy
Montblanc Einstein (3,000) FP
Montblanc Heritage 1912 Resin FP
Montblanc Starwalker Resin: FP/BP/MP. Montblanc Traveller FP.
Play WE game. or POA game.

Thank you for the great pic of a great pen.

Excellent clarity and lighting. Creates a very nice mood.

I love the combination of the 149 nib and the strong stout body of this pen.

A great writing experience.

Dear all, thank you for your kind comments.

Titanic9990: the pen has indeed quite a broad girth (the size of a 139, a Hemingway or a Year of the Golden Dragon), the largest among Montblancs I think. And yes, the grapes are real...

Chris: not plums, but delicious grapes from Peru!!!!

BrandonA: I thought about a Poe several times; It looks beautiful.

Inked: IMO Dumas' nib is perhaps the best designed nib Montbalnc ever made. I like very much the nib of the Hemingway, because it is a simple, plain nib (in MB standards...), and the nib of the Dumas because it is so simply designed...

torstar: I have the father's signature, a memory of my lectures of the Three Musketeers...

pakmanpony: a Dumas can be irresistible (my wife told me it looks like a jewel, a serious compliment): defend it!

bernardo: it was a M nib, transformed into a very slightly oblique cursive by Mike Matsuyama before I bought it. A great work, and a nib that I like it very much. The pen is always filled with Irish Green and I use it for anything at home, from calligraphy to the grocery list.

Gorgeous picture and the pen, of course.
I agree that Dumas nib is one of the, if not THE, most exquisitely designed nib of all Montblanc pens. In fact a close-up picture of this nib (which I borrowed shamelessly off of internet) has been my lock-screen wallpaper for my i-devices for years.

fpupulin, after reading about your postings about Dumas, I was so tempted that I had to get one for myself.

Beautiful photography and it really brings out the beauty in the Dumas nib.
