Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this rare Omas Guglielmo Marconi Sterling Silver Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its wooden OMAS presentation box (including outer), soft pouch and information booklet – confirming first purchase on 1st June 1995. The pen has never been inked and is presented in excellent condition. Only 2800 pens were produced and this is number 0739.

 

 

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.

 

 

The Marconi pens were released in 1995 to celebrate 100 years of radio. They were available in a variety of finishes and this is the limited edition sterling silver version. The bands around the barrel and cap represent the radio waves and the clip is shaped like the Morse code telegraph key.

 

 

The pen is fitted with an 18k fine nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.

 

 

The important details are as follows…

 

 

Condition: Excellent

 

Box: OMAS

 

Nib: Fine

 

 

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”.
