Montblanc in Denmark 1914-1992 - The Untold Story

 

 

Vintage fountain pens and pencils have been major collectible items

by an ever increasing amount of collectors world wide since the late 1980's.

One of the most desirable brands is Montblanc; the prestigious German

company based in Hamburg since 1908.

 

To date it has been a well kept secret that from 1933 until 1964 Montblanc

pens and pencils were also produced in Denmark. Little information had been

available as to what initiated production in Denmark, the range of models

and who made them.

 

The book describes the history of Montblanc in Denmark with focus on

fountain pens and pencils produced in Denmark and on the history of the

company Alfred th. Øberg, which was behind import, manufacture

and marketing in this country.

 

To understand the pen maket in Denmark and the position of Montblanc

in the hierachy of pen brands, a short account of the major Danish

fountain pen companies and competitor brands is included.
