14k Gold Swan No.1 Nib - Semi Flex
Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write
A delightful antique pen from Mabie Todd with a Swan No.1 nib which flexes as beautifully as one has come to expect.
The fountain pen is in overall excellent condition.
The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new inc sac
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 light marks where the pen lid secures to the barrel, some light discolouration throughout, but overall a delightful example.
The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully
Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery, the nib is smooth and flexes from a medium to a broad. Very nice indeed
An early Swan fountain pen, dated circa 1917- early 1920s, this is a lovely example for an antique pen in hardenned rubber, we have refrained from treating the rubber and it ever so slightly shows its vintage which we think is part of the appeal.
The nib is very nice indeed, everything is working just as it should, a very worthy addition to any collection
