14ct Gold SWAN '2' Nib - ITALIC Semi Flex
Lever Filled Fountain Pen: Serviced & Ready to Write
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
The fountain pen is in excellent condition.
The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, gently polished and fitted with a new ink 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, 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
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!
