About This Pen
This is a Elmo-Montegrappa pen from Italy, made 1940-45, when gold was rare and pens a little more restrained. The nib is steel, a EF/F with a bit of flex and some feedback. It’s 12cm long, a little shorter, in black and pearl, a button filler. The celluloid is in very good condition; quite clean with one pinprick and a few minor color stains that might have been in the original celluloid. Trim is chromed but heavy and solid, probably chromed steel. It has a christmas-tree feed that makes one think it might be an older pen, but it is more likely that the nib and/or feed are not original; there is simply no way to tell. Carries main line Montegrappa imprint.
