I received a couple of beautiful Omas fountain pens for Christmas (an Arte Italiana Art Déco Pearl Grey Cotton Resin LE and a Vintage Paragon Arco Verde LE) so I thought I would combine them in a photo with my other faceted Omas.

From top to bottom, they are:
1. a "new style" Paragon in the Wild celluloid ST;
2. a "new style" Paragon in Celluloid Brown Arco GT;
3. a "new style" Milord in Resin Maroon Ruthenium trim;
4. the "vintage" Arte Italiana (Paragon) Art Déco Pearl Grey Cotton Resin LE GT; and
5. the "vintage" Paragon Arco Verde LE Ruthenium trim.

Thank you. You have quite a trio yourself!! :thumbup:

A while back I owned an old-style black Paragon and Milord but regrettably traded them. I sure would love to have that Mueller - a beautiful pen!! Question about your Mueller - was it available with an extra flessible nib?

Cheers!

I'm not sure, Mike. I bought the Mueller pre-owned from the Classifieds. It has a factory Stub nib that was tuned by Greg Minuskin.

My Art Deco, bought new, does have the Extra Flessible nib.

Hello MikeW,

You received very nice Christmas presents! I especially like nrs. 3 and 4. I'd love to see the nibs.

With love,
goldenkrishna

P.S. Where is the rainbow? Is it a work in progress?

Man, I can't believe I missed that one! I must have been asleep at the mouse-wheel that day! :headsmack:

If I recall correctly, the Mueller was available with the extra fessible nib in both EF and F sizes and plated to match the trim in Rhodium, Ruthenium, Rose Gold or Yellow Gold.
