I did some web crawling and came up with a little information. A lot of it came from a website on an Italian server.: https://www.fountainpen.it/Lamy/en

It seems the Favorit is not Hungarian. It is German.

 

Joseph C. Lamy, Parker Germany's general manager, resigned in 1929 when Parker discharged Osmia, and created his own company in Berlin. He began with the production of pens marked Orthos. He acquired Artus Fullaltergesellschaft Kaufmann und Co. After that buy his first pen was a piston filler marketed Artus. During subsequent years he produced the Artus Rekord, Perfect, Favorit, Ballit, Schulüller, Prinz, Junior. I found a web page that tells about the Favorit, but it's in Italian. The best I can get out of it is that the Favorit was produced by Artus in 1939.
During my searching I found the Favorit listed under 4 different names.

Artus Favorit fountain pen
Lamy Artus Favorit fountain pen
Schulfüller (School filler) Artus Favorit fountain pen
Hamann-Favorit fountain pen

Babel and Google translators make Favorit into Favorite, if that's correct or of any help.

 

I found a review for the Favorit, called an Artus Favorit.

Davjohn,

 

Thank you for the information, there is indeed some similarities from the Favorit I received and Orthos/Artus (from which I have some examples) but I did not find the data you found... I will see those pages and thank you again....

 

Regards, Ariel
