"Two fountain pens with Degussa nibs".


Degussa was a German company of extractions of gold and silver. Founded at 1873 in Frankfurt. They made fountain pen nibs for several brands. Degussa had bought up Osmia's nib machines and factory in 1932, because Osmia had money problems in the Great Depression, in they were making pens with out a paper and ink and office supply house backing up the pens like Soennecken, MB,or Pelikan or the later Geha. 
Osmia was a top five German pen company, and made great steel and gold nibs. 
Degussa made nibs after buying up Osmia's pen making machines and workmen.
I bought these two fountain pens with Degussa nibs last weekend at the flea market with this brown leather case. The red one works fine, but the green has the filling system broken? or rusty.

Degussa era una compañía alemana creada en Frankfurt en 1873. Comenzó como compañía extractora de Oro y Plata. Degussa compró la fábrica de plumines de Osmia en 1932 ya que ésta tenía problemas económicos debido a la Gran Depresión. Degussa comenzó a producir plumines de calidad para otras marcas de plumas como Soennecken, MB, Pelikan o Geha.
Compré este par de plumas con plumines Degussa el último fin de semana en el rastro aqui en Frankfurt. La pluma granate funciona perfectamente y la verde tiene el mecanismo de llenado estropeado u oxidado.
