I found this Montblanc 146 in my house, brand new it seems. Is it real or fake?

Also, I found this Burberry fountain pen at the same time. I know this is not a "Burberry" forum but I just couldn't get any info or it. Name/price/materials of it would be great.

Thank you and have a great day

No idea what a Burberry pen might really be but likely any one of dozens of Advertising level pens.

 

The 146 looks fine.

The 146 must surely be authentic as it has a clear ink window and is presumably a piston filler. That's a very nice find, complete with it's new label too. :) 

 

Sorry but I know nothing about Burberry pens though.  :(

I've heard they can squeeze under entryways, sometimes slip in through roofing gaps, or chew holes in the siding & start nesting. I think most people end up with lower value infestations, but sometimes you wind up with a Montblanc.

Are you sure it was the right house?

 

The Burberrys looks like it has a Visconti cap.

It says Burberry on the cap just like Monrblanc does.

It was in a box with several other pens. I want to know how it got here, too

Good to know! I was suspicious because I've never seen full-black montblanc case. I guess it's one of the old ones?

The Burberry's advertising page that Freddy posted says "British design, Italian craftsmanship".


-- Joel -- "I collect expensive and time-consuming hobbies."

INK (noun): A villainous compound of tannogallate of iron, gum-arabic and water,
chiefly used to facilitate the infection of idiocy and promote intellectual crime.
(from The Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce)
