Founded in Milan in 1925, the Kosca Company was initially active in the distribution of items with gold filled and semi precious overlays like combs, compact cases and pencils made in Germany. Later on the company started its own productive facility to manufacture its own pens which were then marketed with the brand names Kosca, Cosca, Spezial and Spezial Super.
The Company specialized in the production of high quality overlays and also produced a wide variety of models including a doctor's pen in hard rubber. Kosca pens were manufactured in high quality celluloid as button fillers and later on as piston fillers.
All models were fitted with omonimous Kosca 14 ct gold nibs.
Kosca overlays were highly appreciated by the market and the company was entrusted with the production of overlays for a number of foreign major brands, among which Waterman in the 1930's and 1940s and most probably Montblanc in the 1920's and 1930s.
