It was 1919, the year the treaty of Versailles was signed. Italy, marked by a post-war crisis, bubbled with great hopes for recovery. In Torino, the first steps down a long road were taken with the birth of Aurora and the creation of the first true Italian fountain. A textile merchant saw the crystallization of a dream he had long meditated and planned. Now the Aurora trademark represents designs and materials which are tangible examples of the most refined pens made in Italy.
Aurora has just brought back the 1960s Duo Carte fountain pen in two stunning finishes. This was the pen your grandfather and grandmother used with pride. Think tail fins, broad boulevards, smooth satin and sharp angles; all essential elements in revolutionary new products of the 60s. The original pen design remains, but is now crafted from modern, durable materials. Select black and silver tones; or red with gold colored trim. The hooded, steel, medium point nib delivers ink from a bottle or cartridges. Your Duo Carte arrives in a companion gift box you will be proud to display, along with a bottle of black, ink converter and two cartridges.
Based upon a 1930s design, the Aurora Optima has always struck our fancy. But the new finishes are amazing. Neroperla is the rookie entrant into this hall of fame. Transparent and iridescent colors of marbled Auroloid combine with silver colored trim to make it the true pearl of the line. Lovely red and blue models are offered with the same trim featuring intricate etching and a classic design. Fountain pens are piston fill and feature Aurora's respected 14k gold nib. Rollerballs refill with excellent options and the twist-top ballpoints refill with high quality, oil-based, gel, or liquid inks in many different colors
The sleek Aurora Ipsilon has been with Colorado Pen since our beginning. There is a good reason – it is a consistent best seller, year after year. Since 1930, Aurora has made subtle changes to the Ipsilon, offering new finishes and trim packages. But the basic design has remained the same. Recently, Aurora added a forest green model to complement the red, yellow and black and chrome fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. The ballpoint is a rare 'one finger' pushdown for deployment and can be filled with any Parker-Style refill in more than ten colors and several ink choices. Fountain pens feature a steel nib plated with either gold or silver to match the pen's trim.
The Ipsilon Satin collection has been so popular, that Aurora has added a new Satin black or blue resin fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint, all trimmed with rose gold. A stunning combination for this value-oriented pen. This new Ipsilon Satin, joins the popular orange and green trimmed in chrome and unique burgundy trimmed in gold.
