For your consideration we are offering for sale this Restored Circa 1926 Mabie Todd & Co SWAN Fountain Pen with fancy gold filled overlay. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.
Ultrasonically cleaned the NIB and feed. Hand cleaned the inside of the barrel and cap with mineral oil. Cleaned, Polished, and Buffed the gold-filled material on the cap and barrel. The gold-filled overlay on the clip displays some wear, the cap and barrel also show some minor wear of the gold-filled over but overall in fine to very fine condition and polished to a fine shine.
This fountain pen is made from black hard rubber with a fancy gold overlay. The end of the barrel, on the gold overlay, has great imprints that read, "SWAN PEN MABIE TODD & CO" LTD. MADE IN ENGLAND. The cap is a screw-on type cap always securing tightly to the barrel. There are no monograms or personalizations on the barrel. There are no cracks, nicks, dents, or repairs to the fountain pen. This Mabie Todd Swan measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 6 1/8" posted.
The NIB is a wonderfully flexible and smooth Mabie Todd 14K Stub #3 NIB. The actual tip of the Mabie Todd 14K NIB measures .1.37mm with digital calipers. When writing the sample in the listing images, the NIB writes with a medium line measuring .67mm, the horizontal stroke, with very light pressure and flexes up to triple broad stroke of 2.03mm with medium to firm pressure. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.
This Swan has a Twist Fill Filler mechanism that has been restored to work again with a new sac. The end of the barrel will turn clockwise and counterclockwise to compress the sac and open it to take in ink or expel it.
Comes with the original Mabie Todd & Co Ltd SWAN Self-Filling Pen box.
This is a wonderful example of an antique Mabie Todd SWAN Gold Filled Twist-filler Fountain Pen. I would grade this fountain pen in fine to very fine condition. These overlay fountain pens are difficult to source and is an amazing wet, smooth writer.
