Retro 51 Tornado Smithsonian Vega Rollerball Pen

ITEM: AP17435
Amelia Earhart Lockheed 5B Vega-inspired capless rollerball pen
Amelia Earhart set two of her many aviation records in a bright red Lockheed 5B Vega airplane. In 1932, she flew it alone across the Atlantic Ocean, then flew it nonstop across the United States, both firsts for a woman. The Retro 51 Tornado Smithsonian Vega Rollerball was designed as an homage to Earhart, for setting the tone for other strong women to make a difference in the world. When you enter the Smithsonian, you’re entering the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex, with approximately 154 million artifacts and specimens. The Museums are dedicated to inspiring curiosity, discovery, and learning about the world through its unparalleled collections, exhibitions, and outreach programs. Retro 51 is proud to produce officially licensed writing instruments inspired by the Smithsonian collection.

About Retro 1951
Starting out in 1990, Retro 1951 set out on a mission to bring fun, fashion and value to the world of writing instruments. Known for their unique designs and cool colors, Retro stands by their mission with every pen they put out, “Life is too short to carry an Ugly Pen!” They look to merge the trends of today with the vintage styles of the “good ol’ days,” nostalgic of that early American dream.
