Aurea

1940s
About This Pen

This is a beautiful pen of 1940’s styling from an almost unknown brand, with brown and green Vacumatic-like stripes descending vertically in triangular slanting patterns, an unusual and remarkable appearance. The pen is 12.3cm long capped, with gold trim.  It is very clean — no tarnish to trim, no scratches of note. The button filler is strong; the pen fills well. The Aurea imprint is partly present but easily read, and there is an indecipherable trace of a second line to the imprint. The Aurea’s nib, which cannot be identified as original to the pen, is marked “Globus”, and “Osmio”, and with what I presume to be a size indicating “4”.  It is also marked “585”, for 14K gold. The nib is a long-tined flexible writer, and it is both strong and delicate.
