Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 45

If you've been reading our pen club blog regularly, you might have noticed that VPCer Jerred has been quietly amassing a nice collection of some lesser-known modern Italian fountain pens.
This newest acquisition of his is no exception....

Jerred's thoughts: "This is a Martemodena Chronicle, in the lovely "Country" acetate finish. This is one of the first Martemodena pens that was sold under their own brand (along with the "Freedom to Be" and "Naturals"). With a warranty date of early 2017, it was almost certainly made by Delta for Martemodena. It is very similar to the "The Journal" model from Delta, with slightly elongated ends."

Jerred continues: "The gold-plated, Bock steel nib is very smooth and a lovely writer. While I'm sad that Delta went out of business, they were still making lovely pens right up until the end."

Many thanks to Jerred for sending us photos of his beautiful new pen for our virtual "show & tell". Delta Pens will be certainly be missed :(
