A reproduction of an early Onoto with a slim barrel and a push-fit sterling silver cap and barrel ring with the Diamond Jubilee hallmark.
Commissioned by the owners of Burlington Arcade, this elegant and stylish pen has been issued in a worldwide limited edition of just 75.
Perfectly balanced, The Burlington is a delight to write with. The body is in high density black acrylic, whereas the push-fit cap is milled from Sterling Silver and features the stylish 'Night & Day' pattern popular in the 1920s. A sterling silver band around the top of the barrel bears large hallmarks including The Queen's Diamond Jubilee mark only available during 2012.
The world’s first shopping arcade
The Burlington celebrates the world’s first shopping mall, Burlington Arcade, which was built in Piccadilly, London, under the orders of Lord George Cavendish to provide a safe place for his wife and her friends to shop in peace. It was opened in 1819 and was policed by former members of Lord Cavendish’s regiment, the 10th Hussars, who kept law and order in the local streets. Known as ‘Beadles’ they have remained a constant presence in Burlington Arcade and even today you’ll find them patrolling the Arcade in top hats and frock-coats.

Certificate of Authenticity
The Burlington is being issued in a limited edition of only 75 pens. Each one comes with an Onoto Presentation Box and a signed Certificate of Authenticity, together with a brief History of Burlington Arcade, an Onoto blotter and a cleaning cloth to keep your pen in tip-top condition. Also included is a leaflet on “How to care for your Fountain Pen”, and a booklet on English hallmarks explaining the history of these stamps of quality. Look closely at the pen and you’ll see the English hallmarks guaranteeing the quality and purity of the sterling silver together with the famous “OPC” (Onoto Pen Company) sponsor’s mark and, for 2012 only, the Diamond Jubilee mark.
The Burlington weighs in at 33 grams and, with the cap not posted, it is perfectly balanced, light weight and sits comfortably in your hand for easy writing over a long period of time.
Made in England – with pride The Burlington is completely hand-made in England by a group of talented silversmiths using techniques which have changed little over the centuries to create a writing instrument that exudes the finest quality.
For more than 100 years Onoto pens have been used and cherished by famous patrons like Sir Winston Churchill, the Japanese writer, Natsume Soseki and Field Marshall Haig who all relied on their Onoto pens to communicate great words of wisdom.
