Onoto 7273 Celluloid Fountain Pen 1930’s 14K F/M Flex Nib. New Old Stock condition. Just serviced with New silicone Ink Sac. Works and writes as when new. VERY rare to find so clean. Made in London, England 1930s. What a fabulous handsome pen this is. Simply stunning to look at and hold. The cleanest example you will EVER see. Museum grade condition and rarity. Very few of these model 7273 – CO Lapis Lazuli (made of Celluloid) pens were made. Even less survive to this day. The wonderful colourway is without discolouration. MOST Lapis Lazuli Celluloid pens barrels discolour darken and discoloured patches form on the cap also. This was due to the original factory rubber ink sacs. Overtime they release sulphur which discolours Celluloid. Same problem with ALL pen manufacturers 1920-30s. This is what makes this Lapis Lazuli so RARE because it has ZERO discolouration. Beyond RARE to find so clean. Of course nowadays we use Silicone Ink Sacs that DO NOT discolour the Celluloid. So this pen will now ALWAYS stay this wonderful colour. The pen has no cracks, splits, scratches or dents etc. The Celluloid has perfect colour and the Gloss and Sheen of a new pen. Has to be seen in person to fully appreciate its beauty. The Onoto the Pen, London etc Barrel imprints are deep and easy to read as when new. The Tail end of the Barrel has Model Number, 7273 CO, imprint and rare BRITISH imprint. The 2 Ring Bands and the Lever are Yellow Gold plated and also perfect. To find an Onoto Lever in this condition with zero plated loss or Brassing etc is one of a kind rare. This is a Clipless model in that it NEVER had a fixed clip fitted. As was the fashion in London at the time. Overall once in the hand to the naked eye this 90 year old looks positively New Born. Must have belonged to Benjamin Button. As beautiful as this pen is to look at it writes even better. The 14C nib is perfect with zero damage or even signs of use. Perfect Iridium Tips are good to last several more lifetimes. This nib is a simple JOY to use. Writes with a Fine to Medium line that has Fine line side stroke at normal pressure. Smooth as Silk with zero paper scratch etc. Perfect for everyday use. However this nib also has flexibility that allows for even more line width variation on the down stroke when varying levels of pressure is applied. Can flex from Fine to Double Broad. The flex is also very user friendly in that it is not Soft, Loose or Twitchy. ONLY flexes upon user command never by itself. This ones worth breaking the bank for. You might never see another. Certainly not one this clean. Ome s ready to write just add your favorite colour bottled ink… Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a wonderful collectible fountain pen that can be used and enjoyed daily..

Onoto 1703 Lever MAGNA Celluloid Fountain Pen 1940’s 14K & Rhodium 7 F/M Nib. Just serviced with new Ink Sac. Works and writes as when new. Made in England 1940’s. These Magna were the largest pen Onoto made in the 1940s. Most pen collectors would agree that the Magna was the highest quality fountain pen made in England during the 40’s. Robust and built to last. This example is in superb original condition. VERY rare to find these so clean. It has zero Cracks, Splits or Repairs etc. The Gold Clip and Lever have light age and patina however they are still the cleanest I have seen. Magna Levers are notoriously thinly plated as are the Clips due to War effort etc when Gold was in very short supply. So a little patina is to be accepted when collecting Magna. Overall once in the hand to the naked eye this 80 year old pen looks fantastic. The pen writes with a smooth Fine to Medium line that can write Bold to Broad when pressure is applied. Perfect for everyday use.

Onoto 1800 Mammoth OVERSIZE Fountain Pen 1920s. 14K & Rhodium HUGE 8 F/M Flex Nib. Made in London, England 1920s. What a wonderful rare pen this is. These model 1800 Mammoth are the LARGEST pen Onoto Ever made. They also have the largest Nib Onoto EVER made. Indeed these early Onoto 8 Nibs are among the biggest nibs ever made by anyone. Larger than a size 9 Montblanc 149 nib for example. Also MUCH larger than a size 8 Montblanc. These pens are VERY long. So long it doesn’t even fit inside my measure at over 6 1/2 inches capped. Longer than a Waterman 18 and 58 for example. But not as wide. This pens 8 Nib still has all its Rhodium plating (Rare Gold nib fully Rhodium plated). The nib is in fantastic condition with zero damage. Its original Iridium tips are good to last several more lifetimes. Very creative nib full of personality. It is a Clipless model in that it NEVER had a Clip fitted. I adore this pens minimalist simplicity. It is all about the business of writing and nothing else. This pen has zero ostentation or Bling. No shiny bits to distract the eye. This pen needs only its sense of history and imposing size to be Majestic. This is a KING among pens. Pen has zero Cracks, Splits or Repairs etc. It is made of BCHR (Black Chassed Hard Rubber). It has warmed a touch to a lovely dark Chocolate. Thankfully no one has been tempted to take a bite as this pen is Dent and Scratch free, The Extra Fine Barley Chassing is timeless elegance personified. The Onoto the Pen london etc… Barrel imprints are still readable. These pens are rare to find at ALL let alone so clean and crack free. These Onoto Plunger Piston fillers were first introduced in 1907. At the time they were the worlds first mass produced self filling pen. 3 or 4 years before Waterman Sleevefiller Sac pens etc. The filling system works by unscrewing the Blind Cap (Tail end) and pulling out the the plunger/piston rod (see photograph 4). Now place ALL of the Nib and Tip of the Front Section into Bottled Ink. Push the Plunger Piston down and wait 5 seconds to fill. Now Screw Blind Cap down tight. Only now you take nib out of the bottled ink. Takes 10 seconds and once you get the hang of it Onoto pens are easy to fill. They fill on the down stroke (opposite of a syringe) creating a vacuum behind the piston head as the piston head is plunged forwards it reaches the Feed it enters a slightly larger void allowing ink to be sucked inside the barrel. Very clever system for 1907. Also a UNIQUE by product of this system is that Ink Flow can be controlled. Onoto invented the worlds first Ink Flow Control pen. Indeed I have an Advert from 1908 advertising these pens as worlds First Leak Free pens with Ink Flow Control. It works by using the tip of the Piston Head Cone (male) and the base of the Feed which has the reverse Concave cone shape. Once the Blind Cap (Tail end) is screwed down tight the piston head and feed MATE and prevent Ink Flow. As you give 1/4 turn of the Blind Cap it allows ink to flow turn Blind Cap more and more ink flow etc… Ome s ready to write just add your favorite colour bottled ink… Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a wonderful collectible fountain pen that can be used and enjoyed daily..
