Thomas De La Rue Ltd began manufacturing the Onoto range in 1905 and they quickly established themselves in an already densely populated marketplace. The pens were successful because of the excellent quality of the materials used and the superior design of the filling system. Onoto pens were as good, if not better than all their contemporaries including Parker, Watermans and Conway Stewart.

This is a superb example of the Onoto's "The Pen" finished in Rolled Gold. The plunger filling system, deliciously quirky but extremely efficient, has been fully serviced with a new washer and seals fitted.

The pen itself is in excellent condition with no dings to the rolled gold finish. The pencil has one very small ding. Both pen and pencil show only very minor wear marks and the plating to the clips is strong and blemish-free.

The 14ct gold nib is in excellent condition and writes beautifully with a Medium Italic line and a gentle flex. The set is supplied in its original box.

Onoto pens are fabulous writing instruments and this set will give years of faithful service.
