OP001 Opus 88 Striped Shell, boxed. (Medium)

ate: c2000s

Size: Length Capped - 139mm; Posted - 164mm.

An Opus 88 in the beautiful abalone shell finish with contrasting matte black cap and barrel ends.  This pen is still in near-pristine condition with no damage that I can see.  I don't think it has been used more than once or twice, if at all.  This is an extremely well-made pen and presented here in its original box with the original outer slipcase.  The cap has a large black top button finished with a chrome disc inserted into the top.  The chrome-plated pocket clip has a spring steel attachment, rather like a vintage Conklin pen.   Around the cap lip is a chrome band which nears the pen's imprint. The barrel has strips of alternating white and coloured pearl with black between the strips and bounded at both ends by chrome bands.  Behind this is a contrasting matte black barre lend and forward is the matte black gripping section.  The lovely large Opus nib is made from stainless steel and is in a medium point.  Unscrewing the barrel reveals an apparently unused Schmidt K5 ink converter. 

A truly lovely and very attractive pen.
