S. T. Dupont Pen Identification


Recommended Posts

Going through my grandfathers old stuff I found a S. T. Dupont ballpoint; it's got a writing that says "Laque De Chine" and a serial number. I'm just wondering if it's worth anything. Any help would be great, thanksIMG_0375.thumb.jpg.a18ac88c4dd3980fe5893be2e8ab7729.jpgIMG_0376.thumb.jpg.300def3291e9fa28f9eb7b4de55d91ed.jpgIMG_0377.thumb.jpg.3bf7d103d86779d298403c8f209cc2b5.jpgIMG_0378.thumb.jpg.a5b40d25e017ec979aa13f33a7270866.jpg.

I don't know, but it is pretty.  Hopefully someone around here can help.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

The pen looks like a ballpoint of the original Dupont Chinese Lacquer pens. They were many fakes of those pens of different quality and some finishes of the same design contiue to be available in the Dupont catalog.

Any way to tell if it’s real or fake? My grandfather was a pretty high gambler in Vegas hotels in the early 90s so I don’t expect it to be fake, but who knows?

Looks like an original ST Dupont Classique ballpoint. Looks genuine to me....

 

I have a handful of similar fountain and rollerball pens. The lacquer has a really nice hand feel although these pens are very slender.  The fountain pens are particularly wonderful to write with. I often travel with one of the rollerball pens. They are slightly thicker than your pen.

Are they with anything? I’m not really in the writing hobby as much anymore due to lack of funds 😂

It is not easy to have a clear cut opinion without having a closeup examination.

I believe it's a genuine ST Dupont pen. I have the same version Poudre d'Or but in rollerball format. The plastic section broke off a while back so I am not using it anymore.

 

My local ST Dupont dealer in town, he is also the ST Dupont service center here showed me that Chinese Lacquer can withstand heat. I pulled out my cigar torch lighter and lit the Chinese Lacquer and nothing happened. Quite impressive. I would not do that to my MB Meisterstuck, lol.

 

If I was you, just use the pen. It's a beautiful pen and deserves to be used.
