Delta, tradition and modernism
On the occasion of the forthcoming incorporation of the Italian brand Delta in Iguana Sell, we are glad to share with you the story behind this brand.
In 1982, three Italian visionaries (Nino Marino, Ciro Matrone y Mario Muscente) established Delta S. R. L., a company for high designed writing instruments with a main goal: to recall the glamour of the ’20s and ’30s with exceptionally elegant instruments. For this, the early years were devoted to producing pieces made of precious metals, celluloid and ebonite, securing that these substances guaranteed the leadership of the company into international markets.
They fixed high standards right from the beginning, given that Delta was competing in the international market of writing instruments. An ambitious goal they have successfully achieved.
While other manufacturers launched and used pens converters, twist-filling mechanisms, or cartridges, Delta decided to reintroduce the lever-and-rubber-sac system as well as the inside rubber tank as standard charging system for their limited editions, such as its edition “Giacomo Puccini”.
In September, 1998, the mayor of Venice received the limited collection VENEZIA, the official pen of the city of Venice.
His models evoke great cultural moments of the history of Italy, also considered art history. Delta has successfully launched limited collections devoted to cities like Venice, or countries like Spain, as well as to historical treasures that are the heritage of many nations and contemporary traditions. It also paid tribute to important figures like Don Quixote, relevant to history, culture and art.
Despite its short history, Delta maintains a series of collections that inspire the respect and recognition of many, being the Dolce Vita collection its main protagonist.
The Dolce Vita collection has become the symbol of Delta. Descending from Colosseum, the initial collection has expanded to currently become the center of production of the Neapolitan company. The Dolce Vita collection is a complete collection of fountain pens as the classic, stantuffo, Zen, mini, soirée, medium, among others.
Delta, specialized in writing instruments, Artigiani della Scrittura, continue to engage in developing renewed high quality pieces, some even become master pieces.
All pen fans should pay attention to this dynamic company, the pieces leaving their workshops do it as collectable pieces, some of them as master pieces.
Iguana Sell is committed to this great Italian brand and very soon you will discover a range of products in our store.
