Condition & Information:
Definitely one of the most gorgeous and great ballpoint pens of Italy, the unique Aurora 98. This beautiful Aurora 98 gold plated ballpoint pen is made by one of the leading producers in the writing instruments in Europe. This ballpoint pen represents the right balance between artisan craftsmanship and technology for the creation of a unique product.
The Aurora 98 vintage ballpen is one of the most famous models of the Aurora company. This model was produced in the late '60s. It is one of the most famous pens of the company after the Second World War. It's an elegant pen, thin and slander. The ballpoint pen was part of the same line and launched together with the famous Aurora 98 fountain pen, the pen which was famous for its masterful solution for the piston filling mechanism which was also called “the magic piston filling”.
The pen has a gold plated body with a unique guilloche design with extremely fine groups of lines from top to the bottom. It features slightly more angular curves and its silhouette is more elegant and refined. This is complemented with a nice clip design that features a small tear like depression shape which is filled with black enamel, while the “Aurora” imprint is nicely engraved on the midsection.
This flagship pen is made entirely from metal, with a thick gold plate and represents one of Aurora’s classics. The pen uses an easy to operate and convenient push upper body mechanism, very smooth and responsive. The original refill is still writing and possibly will for a long time, since the pen has not been used. However, we are including a brand new one Schneider 224/225 Maxi large capacity G1 refill, which fits this pen and makes it usable more than a half a century after it was made. This pen will give you the perfect writing experience as it simply glides on any paper, with both its original and the newly installed refill. The pen comes in its beautiful and unique original hard case presentation box. The pen is in absolute mint condition, ready to be used.
