Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Paragon Galileo Galilei Wild Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with its acrylic OMAS presentation box. The pen has been very lightly used and is presented in fantastic condition – there is a piece of the acrylic missing from the top of the presentation box and a slight distortion of the bottom cap ring (it still remains tightly in place). Only 4692 (the year of Galileo’s birth multiplied by three) and this is number 0106.
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 barrel and cap are crafted from legendary Wild celluloid, which has myriad of cream, black and white tones. The greek key design can be found on the cap and on the section the limitation number can be found.
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…
Condition: Fantastic (distortion on lower cap band)
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”.
