Lever Filled Fountain Pen: Serviced & Ready to Write

 

Overview

 Here we have a delightful Swan SF2 (Self Filler) by Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd. Dated early 1930's, hardenned rubber with hallmarked gold barrel bands. 

A superb vintage fountain pen whose lovely stepped gold cap clip and aesthetic features exude a timeless quality. 

The nib is a classic Italic semi flex nib, a real beauty

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in excellent condition.

 

Servicing

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, gently 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, the hardened rubber has discoloured somewhat, giving it a vintage 'patina', and the lever bar has some tarnishing, but overall the pen is very sound, in remarkably good condition 

The barrel imprints are clear and so too the hallmarks upon the gold barrel bands

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully, an Italic which writes a fine line and offers flex and generous line variation to a double broad.  

A real treat for calligraphers and every day writers alike!
