    the Ancora brand was found around the 20s before in Bologna and after moved to sesto calende on the shore of the Lago Maggiore (Major Lake) also called Lago Verbano (Verbano Lake) in september 1925 and until 1938 was moved in Arona a little city always located on the shore of the Lago Verbano (Verbano Lake).
    Ancora produced writing instruments up to 1975.
    During all time Ancora produced wonderful pens for all marketplaces but especially for the middle and high places.
    Immediately after the war they introduced a new prestige range, simply named lusso "luxury" in four sizes, with piston filler, transparent ringed ink view and gold plated cap.

    The clip of this pen, straight with a rounded profile, extends above the cap top and features a beautiful anchor design inside an oval (sometimes this oval is enameled).
