Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Omas Princess Arco Bronze Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with an izods presentation box. The pen has never been inked and is presented in overall excellent condition – even the original price tag still remains attached to the pen. The arco pattern doesn’t line up across all elements of the pen, but this is a minor point.

 

 

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 Princess was the smallest offering in range, with it measuring only 10cms when capped. They have an elegance and simplicity that only a manufacturer like OMAS could have achieved.

 

 

Arco Bronze celluloid requires no introduction and is arguably the most sought-after pen material on the planet, alongside Arco Verde. With its myriad of gold, brown tones, it’s a material that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The trim is gold-plated. The greek key design can be found on the cap and the year marking of 1993 is on the grip section. The cap top is finished off with its brown silk tassle!

 

 

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

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”.
