Size: Length - 5 1/4 inches capped; 6 3/16 inches posted. This pen looks very similar outwardly to a Parker 88 or Rialto. I am sure any resemblance is completely intentional! A new old-stock Chinese fountain pen. This has never been used. Needless the say there is no damage on this pen. Both cap and barrel are finished in a glossy deep black lacquer over a metal base. All trim is gold plated, including the arrow style pocket clip, cap lip band, barrel band, and bands at either end of the section. The steel nib is partly gold plated, and has the BAOER name imprinted. This is a cartridge/converter pen. You unscrew the barrel to fit wither a standard international size cartridge or you can use the original standard ink converter that is already fitted.
The nib on this pen is very smooth and writes with a good wet and consistent line.
