ANCORA and UHLMANN.. a mysterious connection
I have had this Uhlmman Eterno’s catalogue for years and have often wondered if the facetted pens it shows were Uhmann pens or not. They looked like Ancora pens to me.
Till a few days ago, I hadn’t seen any facetted Eterno pen.
Then I came across this strikingly beautiful facetted Uhlmann Eterno lever filler and had the chance to have a facetted Ancora lever filler of the same size…
The answer to this question will probably be very hard to find. What is however certain is that Ancora and Uhlmann are the only two Italian pen makers who used this incredibly beautiful arco blue celluloid.
