Onoto Pens



ONOTO ADVERTISING FIGURINE
We are now the proud owner of "Onoto Man" (for want of a better name), acquired as part of a pen collection from the descendants of a well known family in Hobart, Tasmania.  It is extremely rare and a similar figurine has not been seen by the world's Onoto expert, Stephen Hull.  Made of solid plaster and standing around 600 mm tall, the figurine is believed to date from 1910 to 1920. Searches don't reveal a similar figurine although Stephen Hull's excellent book "Onoto the Pen" contains images of other Onoto advertising figurines, this one is not featured. Thanks to the family we acquired him from, we hope to learn more about his history in the near future.
