Ran across this photo on pinterest. There was no accompanying information about the pen. Surely someone here is familiar with it. In addition to the decoration, it has a beautiful 14C nib.

No doubt, but it would be interesting to know more about it.

I just did a google image search and there were about 3 pages of results. Unfortunately, each link tracked back to the Pinterest page that originally posted the image. I'm not a member there so I couldn't "view more" (which, hopefully, would have led to the original poster, or some information about the image itself).. but perhaps a member of Pinterest could give this a try and see what turns up?

Hi James,

 

This looks to be one of the artist proofs for Classic Pens LS7 series.

I think the artist did similar designs on MB and Sailor KOP pens before settling on the the Parker Duofold.

 

More info here - http://classicpensinc.com/LS/LS7.htm

 

Very difficult to get hold of these days and as you can imagine, not inexpensive.

 

Cheers

Sarj

Yes, I remember now.

 

I saw this pen and hold it in my hands in 2002. It is a prototype for the mentioned LS7 from Classic Pens. Andy Lambrou wanted to sell this 1 of 1 pen as Montblanc refused to give their permission for this Classic-Pen-Edition.

What a beautiful work of art, and what magnificent photography on that Russian web site!

Roger Cromwell had two of those 149s which he called "Honey Bee" pens at the second Baltimore Pen Show several years. I was fortunate enough to hold and examine both. Truly stunning! Andy Lambrou's designs, prototypes, and finished products are among the most beautiful fountain pens available anywhere.

I can't imagine what these would have sold for had they been publicly marketed. Lambrou's similar pens have a hefty premium and those are based on more modest pens. This is pretty special.

The asking price of the pen from Roger Crowell was $6500 when it sold a few years ago.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
