Just a group photo of the Bordeaux resin variants in the Meisterstuck FP family.

 

From L-R: 114R-Mozart, 144R-Classique, 145R-Chopin, 147R-Le Grand Traveller, 146R-Le Grand.

My 146R is much smaller than my 147R. I also found it interesting that the nib size(length) on the Mozart is nearly the same size as the Chopin. Maybe that is why the Mozart is such a nice pen to use despite its small size.

 

Cheers!

Hari, the Traveler is one MB I have an interest in, mainly because it is cartridge filled and not piston. Is there any chance we could get pictures of the innards?

I love the traveller. The nib on this particular one was tuned for me by Mr. John Sorowka. I will take some more pictures of the innards.

Internals of the Traveller:

 

Even though full sized, the traveller is designed to accept only cartridges. The pen is loaded from the rear. Unscrewing the rear knob reveals the cartridge tray. The threads are metal on metal. The tray can hold two international short cartridges. The tray is so designed that you can also load it with just a single cartridge if you wish. the projection on the centre of the tray does the trick. The reserve cartridge is mounted in the tray with a spring action, you can see the spring hidden inside the knob in the last picture. The tray is precision formed. It is sensitive to minute variations in the international standard cartriges. The MB carts fit very well. The Diamine will fit too. The Pelikan ones won't fit, I found to my dismay, in both my travellers. Also one cannot use the international long carts.

 

The pictures:

A beautiful collection.

 

I'm always fascinated when I see a Mozart, it is sooo small. Great to see it against all the other pens in the range.

 

I've got a black/gold trim 147. I notice your's is larger than the 146. Is this true for all 146/147s? I always assumed they were the same size.

My 147 is quite a bit larger than my late 70's 146.

The 147 has always been this size. The 146 was a bit smaller at the time the 147 was introduced. The current production 146 is the same size as the 147.

Nice photos, Hari.

 

I've had several of the Bordeaux fountain and ballpoint pens and pencils, but have culled my Bordeaux collection down to my very nice 146R italicized BB and my 114R factory B.

 

The little one hasn't been used in years, but I'd never get my money out of it if I tried to sell it. Little pens are like that. :(

I do not like cartridge pens. I like this one. It looks like the tray might add a more substantial feel to this pen...

I've got a Bordeaux 144 that was given to me in the 1980s. I was very taken with the Mozart when it appeared, wish I'd followed my instincts and bought one! Thanks for the great photos.

Thank you Darius and Orfew for your information. My knowledge of the older pens is non-existent.

The sizes have varied quite a bit over time and the older celluloid 146s were even smaller.
