Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful OMAS Amerigo Vespucci Briarwood Fountain Pen, which comes with its OMAS presentation box (some wear to the outer lining). The pen has never been inked and is presented in overall excellent condition – there is a small mark on the top of the cap.
OMAS require no introduction and since their sad demise in January 2016, the hunger from fans and collectors for great examples of their writing instruments has increased dramatically! The company was founded by Armando Simoni and the full name was Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni, abbreviated to OMAS.
Released in 1991, the pen pays tribute to the Italian explorer and navigator, Amerigo Vespucci. The greek key design can be found on the cap and section, with the trim being gold-plated. Taking its inspiration from the Ogiva, the pen is crafted from briar wood, which gives not only a delightful appearance but also a very tactile finish.
The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
