Pre-Owned Pens: 1565 Retro 51 Cioppino Tornado
Era: 1980-present
Price: $149.99
Real abalone shells are lacquered into place for one of Retro 51's most eye-catching fountain pens. Our Retro 51 Cioppino Tornado is new old stock with a sticker still attached to the cap. It comes complete with its box and papers. Although it looks as if the nib has not been dipped, the pen is missing its original converter and cartridges. We're not sure it ever had a converter. It might only take the short international cartridges.
