Anyone Familiar With This Vintage Aurora Model?



Recommended Posts

A while ago, I picked up an Aurora button filler on Ebay for a good price (it came from Romania if that's relevant), which was listed as a Selene, though it quickly became clear it wasn't.

 

It is a huge button filler -almost 17cm from top of jewel to tip of nib, very thick, and with a good heft to it, easily the biggest vintage pen I've seen in person. It is entirely without any markings or imprints I can find, apart from the marking for a #5 Platiridio nib. I don't know anything much about Auroras, anybody know much about it? FWIW, the nib is very flexible, the body is celluloid while the blind cap and section seem to be ebonite.

 

Does anyone know the model name, or of any similar pens, as well as a general figure for value? I feel like I may have seen something vaguely similar listed as a "business pen" or something, but can't find anything now.

Congratulations! Looks like a beauty.

Yep, it is wonderful, even though I haven't had the sac reached yet. I bought it with the intention of selling it on, to assuage my guilt about money spent on pens, but this thing is so gorgeous it will be hard to part with. The nib is also amazing, by far the best steel nib I've ever used, and could go toe-to-toe with some of the best gold nibs I've used. This is my first Italian pen, but I doubt it will be my last :).

I probably will sell it on in a bit, once I've shifted a Waterman Lady Patricia I have. I'll PM you if I do. Would be a shame for such a nice pen to go to waste!

WWII era pen, don't know if it has a name, maybe just an identification code,

model is inspired by OLO 23, the Aurora sub brand that made cheap pens from 1929 to 1943

not rare to be found in Italy, were last celluloid models made by Aurora before starts of 88 production

Do you have vintage AURORA or WILLIAMSON,

italian WWII militaria for sale or trade? Please contact me.

 

Looking for 1950'S AURORA 88?

Other vintage italian pens?
