[SOLD]Swan Early Eyedropper with Solid 18k Band $160
[SOLD]Swan Early Eyedropper with Solid 18k Band
This is a beautiful early 20th century Swan Eyedropper. The flow on this bad boy is so good I can't describe it. Very hard to get it to railroad, and I was trying! The flex is superb. A very nice Full Flex+ that is extremely smooth. Has rare New York made nib in excellent condition. The barrel chasing and imprints are worn, but is visible under lighting. Pictures really not doing this pen justice. The cap has a solid 18k band(not filled!). There are no significant damages to the pen. No cracks or hairlines, but there are a few light marks on the section. That is it. The simplicity of a good eyedropper is that there are no parts that wear or need maintaining. Good pen hygiene is all you need for this pen to work for you day in and day out long until we're dead. Pen will come with eyedropper pipette and silicone greased threads ready for you to fill. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13.5cm capped, 17cm posted, and 12.8cm unposted.
