De La Rue Onoto Self Filling Pen, Boxed - Medium nib

Regular price £195.00

This is a minty long 'N' type self filling plunger fountain pen dating from around 1905-1920. If you have Steve Hull's excellent Onoto book, a similar pen is illustrated on the far left on p36. We have fitted a new plunger seal and cork gaskets so it is filling well with a good vacuum. The nib is a 14k medium with black hard rubber under/overfeed. These nibs are typically quite flexible and this is no exception. It lays down quite a heavy ink line so both decent quality paper and blotting paper will be needed if you want to use it. While the pen is minty, the original card box and instructions are showing their age and some ink stains - 1910

Condition A2/1m - (Ref 12269)
