Unknown Fountain Pen

Recommended Posts

hello all, I hope you are having an amazing day now on to the pen. The best I can make out of this pen is that it has the elmo inscription making it a Montegrappa pen but other than that I have no clue on what else it is any information would be helpful pictures will be included in the links provided.

After emailing montegrappa themselves i received this answer


"thank you for the pics. The pen is a “Elmo” regular FP of the 30ies in celluloid. One of the first pens to be produced in celluloid."


I wanted to include this for the future in case someone had the same pen


Have a lovely day,

:thumbup: A '30's pen. :happyberet:


I lucked into three Boehlers from the '30's....same as the Osmia's but the brothers split the company in '38. Those are the only '30's pens I have. And a '38 Vac.


'40-43? I do have a three-four German 'War' pens, missing the cap ring, in between when the war really started and the German's stopped making fountain pens in May of '43, they saved metal by making a pressed imprint where a cap ring would have been.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

:o I would love to see photos of them. I feel more how do i say this old pens have more "character" and feel proper than new ones. I'm a still a novice on Fountain pens but i have a few new pens but, i tend to be more favoriting older pens.

      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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
