Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Overview

Mabie Todd No.3120 in a stunning deep ocean blue with gold trim, it strikes a regal pose, a beauty of a pen. 

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in very good condition.

 

Servicing

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings

It shows the usual signs of wear and use for a pen of its age, some minor brassing to the cap clip, minor scratches on the cap and barrel, but overall a very nice example 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully - a classic Italic semi flex. The tines give good snap back - clearly only lightly used. A real pleasure to write with

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery for a closeup
