Product Information

MARLEN TRATTATI DI ROMA SPECIAL EDITION Fountain Pen

SOLD  08/2019

Made in Italy and produced in 2007 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome (1957 - 2007) which formed the European Union.

Super size pen measuring 138mm capped. Made in blue starred resin with deep blue/pale blue/ green resin bands to both cap and barrel.

Sterling Silver (925) beautifully decorated central band depicts the European map surrounded by the stars, the symbols of the European countries.

Pocket clip has the star circle and the anniversary details are depicted on the cap band.

Large 18ct Gold rhodeum coated BROAD nib which is uninked. I have tried it 'dry' and it feels to be smooth as silk.

Piston filler.  Never been filled.

In original fitted hard Marlen yellow and blue velvet case with original booklet and Marlen ink bottle and Marlen pouch. Also has the original card outer box.

Please note the the ink bottle has leaked slightly at some stage and there is a small dried ink stain in the case under the bottle.

Gold plated plaque in top of box depicts the Anniversary.

Pen is in absolutely mint and uninked condition.  Fabulous item from a top quality Italian maker.

The pen seems to be still available new and appears to retail at around the £600/$875 mark.  

Mine is a lot less so do consider the opportunity to have a 'super-pen' in your collection for a very reasonable price.
