Commissioned by the owners of Burlington Arcade, this elegant and stylish pen has been issued in a worldwide limited edition of just 75.
The cap of The Burlington is milled from Sterling Silver with a stylish ‘Night & Day’ pattern popular in the 1920s. It’s a push-fit cap, similar to the Onoto Overlay No 1 pen by Henry Simpole. There is also a silver ring around the top of the barrel which bears large hallmarks including The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee mark only available during 2012.
Unlike most Onoto fountain pens that use a large #7 nib, the Burlington uses an Onoto #3, 18 carat gold nib available in fine, medium, and broad widths in addition to custom ground stub, italics, and obliques.
The Onoto Burlington is a svelt pen, coming in at 146mm long with a barrel diameter of 12.5mm and only weighing 33 grams. Filling is done via the simple cartridge / converter system. You can have one of the 75 Burlingtons for only $937.50. Please visit Onoto’s website for more information, images, and to order yours.
