An Onoto Magna model 1873 in transparent silver lattice with rhodium plated cap bands and clip. This pen was made about 1937. The barrel imprints are crisp: “ONOTO MAGNA. DE LA RUE & Co Ltd. LONDON”. The model number is not imprinted on the barrel or plunger nob, not uncommon on Magnas of this date.
It has a big 14k number 7 nib, a fine point with nice flex.
CONDITION: fine; excellent transparency, the rhodium plating has no brassing, the plunger filler has been serviced and fills well and the nib has good tipping. An lovely example of this early Magna model.
