Aurora

Founded in 1911 and still manufactured at the original company factory in Turin, Aurora fountain pens display a uniquely Italian approach to design. The Ipsilon De Luxe is a terrific entry level pen, while the Talentum and Alpha series offer high end style at a mid-level price. The 88, Optima, and Riflessi pens are sophisticated piston-fillers with gorgeous styling, and Aurora also offers limited edition pens that are the equal of any manufacturer today.
