Among the most typical forms of the twentieth century, the features of Art Deco are unmistakable. Their ability to simplify ornaments, introducing modernity as a new concept of elegance inspires Stipula's historic Novecento collection. Essential and unadorned shapes yet designed with perfection of curves and relationships make Novecento synonymous with dry and timeless distinction.   


In the Novecento muzzle-loading model, a bold operation never attempted before is carried out, transposing the direct-loading fountain pen of the late nineteenth century into modernity, without distorting its essential character, but making it auniquefor everyday writing.


Novecento avancarica Nuda has in fact a nib block equipped with a generous ebonite feed which, as in the ancient safety fountain pens (thesafety pen of the late nineteenth century), moves back and forth along the axis of the tank. The ink is charged - as in tradition - through a dropper, from the front (hence the definition "muzzle-loading"). Once the ink has been refilled, the fountain pen is used in a completely normal way by screwing the cap onto the everted nib, thus guaranteeing maximum cleanliness and ease of use.


A great advantage of the twentieth century in the Nude Muzzleloader, borrowed from the tradition ofsafety pen, is that the ebonite feed is constantly immersed in a real ink bath. This enhances the freshness and generosity of the line even with the most demanding nib tips. The crystalline transparency of the tank combined with the gold details then creates an effect of absolute purity.
