Hi Fabbale,

Nice photos and great pen!

I have never seen a Parker Duofold with Italian markings. I had no idea any were made there, though I suppose it is possible pens from elsewhere were so marked for reasons of politics or sales needs.

That is a very nice find.



Thank David

The pen is an Aurora. The Novum was one of the premier models for Aurora in the 1930's.

This is a beautiful pen. Looks like the pen has the twist lever mechanism.

The NOVUM models were famoud for your lever filler at the end of the barrel

Thanks for the comments on my pen. A certain Italian man keepa many beauties like this pen in a spa in Tuscany, I was fortunate to have swept this one up to muggy Texas.

Don't worry, if you're the crazy Aussie / Ulsterman, you are welcome in my threads! ;)

Also in Italy there was a company named CORONA.

These fountain pens were made from the second half of the thirties through the fifties by a Milan firm called Mario Diaz.The models from the thirties/early forties are beautiful colored celluloid lever-fillers and button-fillers fitted with a gold nib marked “Corona.” The engraving on the barrel consists of the word “Corona” written in 18th-century style inside two rings.

Nice, rare pen!
I will try to post pictures on my large gold filigree pen later...but silver is by far more rare, especially since it is in the oversize.

Thank Jiffy
I'm waiting yours gold filled oversize.
