Omas introduced the Classica series in the first half of the 1930s. 

Minerva Classica are slender lever fillers with a perfect balance which were produced in three sizes and a variety of colorful celluloids. Beyond solid black, these pens were manufactured in striking striped green, gray and  blue and in gray and red arco celluloids.

The arco celluloid used for Minervas is different from the one Omas used for its other models. The arco pattern is achieved using lined celluloid which creates a pattern of  symetric arches, totally different from the more casual and richer  patterns generally found on Extras and 361s.

This Minerva Classica in jet black celluloid is a  medium size in excellent condition. It is fitted with a very pleasant and well perfoming Minerva 14 ct gold nib.

It is a very nice everyday writer, suitable for a female or a small male hand.
