This is a vintage black & gold
carioca 10 color ballpoint pen from Italy. Its probably from the sixties. It was a gift I had received as a kid from one of my aachis (grandma) Mrs Chella Albert ( my grandma's elder sister).
Chella aachi is no more but few of the gifts she had given me whenever she visited us have always been special and bring back lot of fond memorise...She was the one who introduced me and my brother to Enid Blyton, Tintin and so many other adventure books. It was always story time in the afternoons whenever she visited..A large part of my philately collection is her contribution. Receiving her letters were also as much fun as writing to her. She was a big part of my childhood memories. Thank you Chella aachi..
Another gift, Bible Quiz- a pack of cards from the 80s
Her letter that came along with my birthday card!

I had one of these pens. They were so fun, but who knows what happened to mine. Good that you still have yours, especially since it has such good memories. Hope June is going well.ReplyDelete
Nice of your grandmother... I too had this pen once, but I don't remember who gave me.ReplyDelete
I still have a similar pen, but with just three colours. This post is a wonderful tribute to your lovely Chella Aachi! ValerieReplyDelete
