I hope people can remember the Ponte Vecchio after seeing all the" Omas Eye Candy," because those who complain about the Visconti Clips & their over the top designs, would perhaps appreciate this pen.  If I am not mistaken, I believe Visconti used some vintage celluloid when they made these pens.  I just know it is one of the most beautiful Viscontis I have ever seen.  I am not usually a "Blue" person, but when combined with that wonderful rusty color, they both just enhance each other.  

 

Thanks for "dessert" tonite; these are all beautiful pens; the shot of the last pair of Omas pens is also a beautiful ending!

What are the faceted Omas'?  A couple of those celluloids look like they would be fun to own.

The faceted Omas pens are Paragons.  Omas also made several smaller faceted models.

One of my favorite celluloid pens is the Omas Bibliotheque Nationale which an FPN member reviewed several years ago.

Unfortunately I can't post photos anymore cuz I've exceeded my limit.

The pen manufacturer is Aurora, that pen was produced as a marketing instruments of the largest Italian automotive industry FIAT, which also is based in Turin (well, recently following the acquisition of General Motor, it moved its fiscal headquarters outside of Italy, in Netherlands if I remember well).

Beautiful pens in exquisite celluloid, thanks for shearing !

What a pity there are no Italian celluloid manufactures anymore…
