14k Gold SWAN Nib '2' - FINE SEMI FLEX

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Overview

A lovely cigar shaped Mabie Todd - in classic burgundy brown, carrying a fine semi flex nib - everything one could expect from a vintage flex nib, nice and responsive with a good deal of line variation

 

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

It shows the usual signs of wear and use for a pen of its age, some minor brassing to the lever bar, minor scratches on the cap and barrel, but overall a very nice example 

 

Writing Style

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

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