I recently bought a fountain pen with the logo depicted in the attached photo.  I think it is probably a fashion house brand, rather than a pen brand.  I know it was made in Italy because the sterling silver maker’s mark is Italian.  Unfortunately, all I can make out on the silver maker’s mark is 155.  It may have an additional digit and the location lettering is not legible.  If you recognize the logo, please let me know.  Thanks.16EC5A76-6853-4F91-8B4A-5744B9FA2287.jpeg

Is it GJ - on the nib? In which case it could be George Jensen - perhaps - a Danish maker that specialises in silver pens.

Hi sandy101.

 

I don’t think it is Danish because the cap has an Italian silver maker’s mark.  Here’s another photo of the whole pen.  I suspect it was made by a pen company like Grifos for another brand whose unidentified logo is on the nib.  I have several other examples of this type of cross-branding: Brioni by Omas, Givenchy by Sailor, Gucci by Ferrari da Varese, and Nazareno Gabrielli by Delta.

Looks like the George Jensen mark is different:

Hi Tutelman,

Looks more like a stylized "H" to me; rather than a "GJ."

Perhaps a Hallmark? They're no longer around, but it was a fairly popular brand years ago.

I’m sorry that I don’t know the answer, but since you mentioned it, it’s certainly nothing that OMAS would have endorsed. I hope you won’t get offended, but to me it looks like a wannabe Chinese knock-off of whatever quality fountain pen. I’m just judging from the looks of the nib imprint.

What I am seeing on the nib is an enclosed stylised letter 'H'.  It appears to have the two vertical strokes of an 'H' without the cross stroke?  Would that associate it with any known Italian maker?
