Vintage Arte Italiana
With its patterned finish and twelve-faceted shape, the OMAS Arte Italiana Sterling Silver Limited Edition Silver fountain pen is a striking homage to the Art Deco style of the 1930s. Available only in 35 numbered pens worldwide, we are pleased to announce that we have managed to secure a very small number of these for our customers. The use of metal was a sign of the burgeoning industrial era in America, and the silver finish here symbolizes the aura of Art Deco style. For a gold version check out the Arte Italiana Sterling Silver Limited Edition fountain pen in Vermeil.
Made of sterling silver, this fountain pen weighs in at 70 grams and is 5.6" when capped. Because of its use of precious metals, this is a heavier pen for those who appreciate some heft. When the cap is removed, however, it is well-balanced, and the smooth black section makes it easy to grip. This piston-filler has a generous ink capacity of 1.7 ml. Black and silver harmonize to add a sleek, modern touch to a pen with an overall vintage look.
Take a closer look at the intricate pattern that covers cap and barrel, above. It almost appears like crested waves on the ocean, or snow-capped mountains gently sloping into the distance. The delicate engraving brings textural delight to the OMAS Arte Italiana Sterling Silver Limited Edition fountain pen.
The classic roller-ball clip, originally designed in the 1930's, secures the pen to pocket. Notice the softly domed cap end and the faceted edges.
This pen ships in an attractive Omas presentation box. You can see the limited edition number above, which is engraved into the section.
We are able to offer the Omas Arte Italiana Sterling Silver Limited Edition Silver fountain pen with standard rhodium-plated 18k gold nibs in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Extra Broad, or stock Stub. It is also available with 14k semi-flexible nibs in Extra Fine Extra Flessible, Fine Extra Flessible, and Medium Extra Flessible.
The 14k Flessible nibs are excellent candidates for the modification for added Flex, while the 18k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique - see our nib customizations page for more information.
Each pen is numbered, with just 35 pens available in each trim style. We have only a very small number of these pens available - once they are gone, there will be no more.
