18ct Gold Nib - FINE Flex Nib 

Button Filled Fountain Pen: restored and ready to write

 

Overview

 Edacoto were a leading French manufacturer of fountain pens, originating in the early 1900's as 'Edac' and producing quality fountain pens as late as the 1950's

Here we have a lovely pocket sized fountain pen, in 18ct gold plate, with a delightful springy nib with a hint of flex. 

The pen's cap posts to give a slender full sized pen. 

This is a delightful mini fountain pen ideal to be taken out in a handbag or top pocket so you never need to be without a beloved fountain pen! 

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in excellent condition.

 

Restoration

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

It comes ready to write. 

 

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 at the read of the barrel and it looks as if the cap possible used to have a ring top attached, but otherwise a superb shiny gold pen in excellent order.

 

Writing Style

The 18k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully, it is a springy responsive nib, reminiscent of Montegrappa's lovely nibs. 

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

The nib writes a fine line but pressure can be applied for a nice degree of line variation - a delightful, delightful writer
