A fine example of the iconic Aurora 88, designed by Marcello Nizzoli and launched in 1947, complete with the almost equally iconic metal tube case. The 88 has a hooded nib to compete with the Parker 51.but Nizzoli designed a new piston filling system with a differential thread and an advanced ink feed to ensure regular ink flow. As a result of the advanced design the 88 was very successful.
This pen has the rarer sterling silver cap, most of which were sold to Italian companies as gifts, this with the company name “Viberti” lightly engraved at the base of the cap. (Viberti, like Aurora based in Turin, was a manufacturer of commercial vehicles, buses and coaches and after the war, mopeds.)
This pen has a mark for a medium nib but I would say it writes more fine than medium. The filler has been serviced and works perfectly and the ink window has excellent transparency.
The metal three-sided aluminium case comes with the original polishing cloth and is also in excellent condition.
