A Nice Pair of Onotto's
Permalink Closed


I picked these one up the other day in a lot of pens from ebay. Awesome writers!

The first one is a smooth BHR lever filler with the sunburst on the clip. Other than a tiny issue with the end of the barrel it's in excellent condition. The nib is just incredible.










This one is a celluloid vacuum filler. Part of the vac system was missing so I converted it to an eye dropper filler. It now holds 1.9 CC's of ink! Another superb nib & writer.

Dennis,

You need a better camera and/or technique. I can barely make out what you are trying to show us.

What can you tell me about these Keith? All I know about them is in the description in the "I'm Selling" thread.

Onoto pens started in 1905 with the plunger filler. Not an easy repair because it's a bit fiddly. They are great pens and are found with plunger fillers and lever fillers. Red hard rbber, red/black mottled hard rubber, chased and smooth hard rubber ( some with silver or gold overlays). celluloids. The numbering of the models is still a mystery. They also made a great range of stylographic pens. I will try and post a few pics this week.
