Rose Marbled Monte Rosa #4 Lf/mp Set Or is it a Waterman Patrician?




I had the good fortune to find this on the bay the other week.

It's a rare marbled Monte Rosa with non too subtle design leanings on the Waterman Patrician.

As a Montblanc and Waterman fan I feel its done a pretty good job of combining the best of both worlds!

I love the flexible very large No 4 nib and the quirky clip and lever design. The cap band needs no mention - gorgeous!

  2. Hi Hako

    No, the pen set is made by a Swiss manufacturer by the name of Monte Rosa but there are similarities in quality and design to Montblanc. Even the marbled celluloid and the gold nib looks like period Montblanc production.

    Best,
