14k Gold SWAN '1' - Extra Fine Flex Nib
Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write
The SWAN minor features a stepped cap, black metal lever bar and a brilliant 14k gold extra fine nib, which offers a hint of flex, and writes a dry line. Perfect for quick writers who love fine nibs, and are looking for that little bit of vintage 'flair' in their lettering.
The fountain pen is in very good condition.
The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings
The clip is tarnished and shows mottling, and the cap and barrel show minor surface wear, but otherwise a very nice clean example
The imprints are nice and clear and legibly read: SWAN Minor by Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd
The 14k Gold Nib is an extra fine which offers a touch of flex and writes a dry line.
