ON121 Onoto The Pen. (Stubby Medium/Broad)

Date: c1930s

Size: Capped - 5 3/8 inches; posted - 7 1/16 inches

A very pretty Onoto plunger filler in green marbled celluloid, and in excellent condition.  I can see a little plating wear to the upper surface of the spherical pocket clip terminal but that is just about the only damage I can see.  Unusually, the black hard rubber cap top, barrel end blind cap, and finger grip all have a lovely deep, black colour with no fading apparent.  The pen is in great condition with a scratch-free glossy barrel and cap.  The cap has is in the "streamlined" style, and tapes quite markedly toward the top, where there is a larger black hard rubber button that holds on the washer-style pocket clip.  This is gold filled, has the TDLR cypher at the shoulder, and a spherical ball terminal at the bottom.  The cap has a single gold filled band at the lip.  The barrel exhibits a large, and clear imprint.  The long, slim finger grip is also made from hard rubber and this retains its deep black hue.  The No. 3/ST Onoto nib is made from 14ct gold, and is in a medium/broad point. 

I have fully serviced this pen.  The plunger filler works well, filling the pen with a single stroke as it should.  The nib has a slightly stubby end, so although it is not particularly soft, it will still give a little line width variation as you write.  The nib is somewhere between a medium and abroad in width.
