Delta was an Italian pen manufacturer, and unlike most, a relatively new company. They opened in 1982 as a private company, and made very high quality pens. Perhaps best known for the orange and black Dolcevita, Delta’s pens were elegant writers in decorative bodies, and their hallmark was small runs of handmade pens. Their later Fusion series was quite innovative, adding a gold overlay to a steel nib. During the 1990s, Delta produced a number of limited editions, including the Astra, in green, red, and black celluloid. Delta closed in 2017.
