Back in the 1950's, the original Aurora Duo Cart was the first pen with a dual cartridge system (install one, room to store the second) and a hooded nib. Today, the Aurora design department has reinterpreted the style of that period, designing a modern fountain pen with the typical 1950's tapered shape design.
The burgundy resin body is complemented by a gold-plated cap with a clip, and a black resin grip section. The hooded gold-plated steel nib in medium writes with a smooth stroke. It fills via proprietary Aurora converter or cartridge.
It comes packaged in a black leatherette elegant box, with a cream leatherette interior. It comes with a special ink, converter, two cartridges, and a certificate of authenticity.
