This elegant Swan vintage fountain pen was made in England by Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd in 1928. It is made of hard rubber rather than plastic which was used for later fountain pens. Hard rubber fountain pens were upgraded for the more discerning customer by the addition of gold fill and other decoration. In this instance two gold fill bands were added to the pen barrel at time of manufacture and one to the cap top. The gold fill cap clip states “Patent Jan 19 1915”. It has the added attraction of a woodgrain hard rubber insert on the cap just underneath the gold fill cap band and a medium writing Swan No.2 nib which states “Swan 2 14ct Mabie Todd & Co.Ltd Made in England”. The strong barrel imprint states “Swan self-filling pen Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd Made in England”. This vintage fountain pen measures 138mm with cap on and 175mm with cap on barrel end. There is some brassing to the gold fill trim however overall it is in good condition. Suitable for everyday use or to add to a collection it is a fine example of a fountain pen of the period. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request at check out where you may choose your method of payment.
