Delta Pens display elegance and sophistication in both their limited edition and non-limited editions. These works of art have become highly coveted by many pen enthusiasts, particularly since Delta closed their doors two years ago. This particular example is a limited edition run of the Dolcevita pen, a bright sunny Mediterranean colour scheme with 14k Gold broad nib which writes with a good degree of line variation, much like a stub nib.
The set is in in mint condition and comes boxed and complete with all its original papers, guarantees, sleeves, Delta threaded ink converter and hard case. A near new example of a sold out special edition
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.

An irresistible pairing for this pen would be Jacques Herbin's Cornaline D'Egypt.
