Montblanc 22 1/2 Chef D'Oeuvre in Burgundy

This is an extremely rare Montblanc made for export to France c. 1930.

It is essentially a #20 in style and design but has the 22 1/2 imprint (presumably to denote the price it was being sold for in France). The other signs that this was intended for the French market are the super rare Chef D'Oeuvre imprint on the cap and the 18 kt gold nib.

This is an extremely rare pen from the golden age of Montblanc. A standard #20 in Burgundy is rare as it is. This Chef D'Oeuvre # 22 1/2 is certainly the only one of its kind that I have ever seen.
