De La Rue Onoto Ink Pencil with black transparent barrel and Magna-style rolled gold clip and wide cap band.
According to Stephen Hull’s “Onoto The Pen” these date from 1938, alongside the Magna fountain pens and sold for 10/6 (10 shillings and six pence), which compares with 37/6 for the Magna fountain pen.
The barrel imprint is crisp:
SELF ONOTO FILLING
DE LA RUE (BRITISH MADE) LONDON
“PATENT APPLIED FOR”
The plunger knob has a feint sub-model number “49”.
The pen is 12.4cm closed and 15.3cm when the cap is posted.
This ink pencil is in excellent condition, perfect barrel transparency, no brassing of the gold filled trim and the plunger filler has just been serviced.
(I have an Onoto card box, a bit tatty, not sure it is the correct box but I will ship the pen in it.)
