Just paid for this and it is being shipped within the week . Anyone familiar with the Artus Favorit ? Looks neat but I know nothing about it other than the seller is reliable and always sends me something good . May poke the pig this time but at $40 I ain't gonna worry about it too much . Heres pictures . Eddie
I recently purchased and restored this beautiful piston filler, and I'm trying to learn some information about it. The only markings on the entire pen are "Favorit" on the cap, and "Warranted Wing Flow" on the nib. While doing some research on "Favorit", I came across Lamy's Artus Favorit pen, and there are definitely some similarities here: the clip shape, and the piston mechanism's glued on cork. My best thought is that this is some kind of knock off, but the quality of the materials and build make me think that this is more than just a copy. Does anyone have any thoughts or perhaps any experience with a similar pen? http://i.imgur.com/4eBJ1INl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/PNyhvj4l.jpg http://i.imgur.com/waAuH9zl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/BJdabXAl.jpg
The National seems to be rather an obscure German brand, not often mentioned on fountain pen forums. As far as I can say their pens were of good quality but that's it; of no spectacular design and lacking far reaching innovation. Probably the most comprehensive historical account can be found on the already defunct Collectible Stars web page: http://www.collectiblestars.de/Angloamer.html I have a feeling that there is more to this brief history. Meanwhile, one of my few Nationals: http://i.imgur.com/bR4agvL.jpg National Favorit (74), F, ?1930s
