Aurora 88 Black with Gold Cap

With its classic tapered design and elegant color combination, the Aurora 88 Gold-Plated Cap with Black Barrel Large fountain pen is a timeless addition to the long-standing line of Aurora 88 pens. The etched gold-plated cap adds a layer of glamour when paired with the black resin body, and carries about a third of the weight of this well-balanced pen.

Not only is the Aurora 88 Gold-Plated Cap with Black Barrel Large fountain pen aesthetically sophisticated, it is also a terrific everyday writer. The transparent ink window located between the barrel and the section indicates when it's time to refill this generous piston-filling pen, and the window is completely concealed when the pen is capped.

With its hidden reservoir system, this Aurora 88 gives an extra boost of ink just when you need it.

Notice the modern block-letter engraving of the Aurora brand name on the gold cap band. The curvaceous gold clip demonstrates the excellent attention to detail on this pen, and seems to emulate the shape of a droplet of water suspended momentarily.




The 88 Gold-Plated Cap with Black Barrel Large fountain pen ships with your choice of any of Aurora's Large 14k Yellow Gold nib units.
