A very attractive predominantly orange Marlen Asia ballpoint pen in its original box. Although I don't think this pen has ever been used, there is a tiny scratch on the sterling silver cap band. I have taken a close-up photo if the scratch so you can see it. You would probably never notice it unless using some kind of magnifier. The pen has a stepped cap top with a small inset silver disc that has the Marlen nib logo impressed into it. The ornate silver pocket clip has a roller terminal. It has a very narrow gold plated band above and below, and imprinted onto the band is "Continenti Asia - Collexioni Marlen". The point is also sterling silver. The barrel is in burnt orange coloured pearlised resin with a very unusual and attractive stripe down each side made from a pinkish resin with deep purple rectangles. The cap unscrews to allow the fitting of a standard Parker/G2 refill. The pen has a working refill in it and a spare refill in the box. This has a black leatherette outer with a white satin lid lining and a black flocked pad. The white outer slip-case is also included - this has some creases and a little scuffing to the corners.
All in all, a lovely and quality pen at a very good price.
