A rather rare and collectable ONOTO fountain pen and pencil set from the 1930's, complete in its original ONOTO box, with guarantee and filling instructions. 

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in very good condition. The pencil is in good condition 

 

Servicing

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac

 

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no splits cracks or engravings

Both pen and pencil show signs of wear.

The fountain pen has some plate loss at the foot of the grip section, and a small chip there too. 

Both pen and pencil have marks and wear around their tops (possible teething) see photos. The pencil shows some cosmetic wear on the barrel too. 

Despite these imperfections, both are lovely and shiny examples, fully working, and still have a lovely aesthetic quality. 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully, a finer medium with a hint of springyness to the nib - not a flex nib - but a lovely responsive writer. 

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery
