For sale here we have one of the nicest pens I have ever come across, it’s a gold filled example of the Swan Leverless. The gold filled finish is utterly stunning, the patterning on it is truly beautiful, and the effect produced by the entire pen being gold filled is wonderfully luxurious without being even slightly gaudy. The pattern is a bit stronger on the cap than on the barrel, but I think this is most probably a result of how this pattern was originally applied, and not wear. Unlike many gold filled pens, this one is not personalised, indeed the whole pen is in generally in very good condition, there is a bit of brassing on the cap top, however this is the only brassing on the whole pen and really doesn’t detract from the overall look of the pen. The pen is ding free and just drop dead beautiful. However the good news doesn’t stop there, this pen is also fitted with a lovely nib extra fine nib that is right on the boundary between semi-flex and flex, however as it writes a fine line normally the line variation is very noticeable. Please see the writing sample for full details of just how amazing this nib is. I have disassembled the pen, flushed it of old ink and re-assembled it, fitting a new sac, so this pen will be ready to write from the moment it arrives with you.
