[MONTBLANC - CUSTOMIZED]: Custom Masonic 18K Heavy Gold-Plate & Diamond Safety Fountain Pen, c.1930s
Custom 18K heavy gold-plate overlay on Montblanc safety pen body, perhaps #302, decorated with numerous table-cut white diamonds, embellished with Masonic emblems. Fully retractable No. 4 14K gold Montblanc nib. Among the engravings is the date 15th June 1891, possibly the date that the recipient's Masonic temple was established.

A fascinating artifact, wonderfully conceived and executed, this is the most elaborate and charismatic custom pen we have ever seen.
