Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this lovely Omas Paragon Royal Blue Celluloid HT Fountain Pen, which comes with its OMAS presentation box, pouch and paperwork – confirming first purchase on 1st April 2007. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in overall lovely condition. There is a small mark on the main cap bands and the nib also has some small marks and plating loss (shown in the photos), but we’ve write tested the pen and it doesn’t effect the experience.

 

 

 

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 Paragon is one of their most recognisable pens and they have an elegance and simplicity that only a manufacturer like OMAS could have achieved.

 

 

The barrel and cap are crafted from wonderful Royal Blue celluloid, which features myriad of tones. This colour is known to suffer from fading, where the celluloid turns to more of a purple, but this example doesn’t suffer from this issue.

 

 

As mentioned, the pen features a piston filling mechanism, so bottled ink is your choice here. It’s fitted with an 18k medium nib.

 

 

The important details are as follows…

 

 

Condition: Lovely

 

Box: OMAS

 

 

 

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”.
