Chrysler not GM.



This is a proof that I am not very well-versed in cars. Thank you for the correction.

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.

Jess for you even though it's not celluloid

Thanks, Jar! And all these years I thought I had a celluloid pen. It's still pretty awesome. It has such a warmth to it...unlike other acrylic pens I have. Casein, maybe?


ETA: Omas is calling it "vegetal resin"...whatever that is.

My pens in Italian Celluloid, except for one Oldwin Art Deco in Tibaldi Impero that is with Michael Masuyama for nib grinding.



My "Wild" pens: OMAS 360, OMAS Galileo, Oldwin Classic



OMAS ogivas in (bottom to top) Arco brown, Extra Lucens and Green saft.

The Ogiva in the extra lucens material is from a LE of 30 made for Novelli.



Miscellaneous pens in Italian Celluloid: (top to bottom) Stipula for Mercury, Delta Fusion 82 done for Chatterly, Stipula Etruria de Architectura Alberti, Stipula Florentia Amber


I am not sure the Stipula "amber" is celluloid or a resin, actually.

I am only convinced of one Omas celluloid pen I have, since it is a pretty new edition, 2015 & even with my "Smoker's Nose," I can still get a good whiff of camphor, when removing the cap from the pen! (It may not be as strong as the smell of my Mother or Grandmother's Camphor bottle, I grew up fascinated by same activity, but it is "there." Strange, I never saw any family member in need of restorative aid of Camphor bottle, but both Grandmother's & my Mother had one on their dresser.)
