14k Gold Swan Nib - SEMI FLEX 

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Overview

A delightful antique pen, made by Mabie Todd in 1915, in remarkably good condition, with a 14k gold semi flex nib, distinct yellow metal casing and stepped Swan cap clip.  

 

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

Cosmetically the pen is in very good shape, the rear of the barrel has some minor dents and blemishing (see photos) and there are signs of wear throughout the pen, but overall a very good example, fully functioning and a joy to write with. 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully - a classic flex nib.

Although the writing sample states 'smooth medium' the nib is closer to a fine medium with flex to a broad line. The nib is a tad more flexible than a 'springy' nib but not quite a full blooded semi flex. 

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery - it writes beautifully.
