Can someone help me to identify the fountain pen in the photo? The hands are from Edmund Husserl, the founder of Phenomenology. I don't know exactly the year of the photo, but it could be from 1920 - 1938 (the year of his death). The friend who posted it in Facebook works in the Husserl Archives (Leuven), and says it is a pen with an ink reservoir (not a dip pen). Curiously, he appears to be using it with the nib upside down, surely to get a finer stroke.

It could be a Montblanc safety filler.
Can your friend supply us with a precise date for this photograph?

Thanks, meiers. The date of the photo is almost certainly 1935. So, the pen cannot be of a newer model. Does this information helps?
