The Full Story
Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd was originally established as Mabie Todd and Bard of New York, USA in 1873 and began production in the UK in 1905 under licence.

The UK branch bought out the US outfit in the early 1920’s and Mabie Todd became a wholly owned British company, thriving thanks to British preferences for conservative design and reliability and successful advertising campaigns.

The SWAN Leverless is a lovely full sized fountain pen, with a large No.4 nib which is a superb oblique nib, a wonderfully friendly and accommodating writer, with good ink flow and offering a broad / fine line. 

The Nitty Gritty
There are no major imperfections to note, no splits cracks or engravings.

The pen has general surface wear, discolouration to the rubber fittings and some micro scratches to the cap and barrel 

Writing Style
The SWAN No.4 nib is a lovely oblique broad nib. Please see the writing sample in the photo gallery
