Help with this item would be appreciated. It is part of the collection of my cousin Diana who lives in Ireland. She is hoping that someone on CW can help with some information about her pen and pencil set.
Help Helms!
She writes: "It is a Swan Mabie Todd pen and pencil set in a pouch with 14k on the nib. They could be gold or rolled gold I can't tell".

This is the only image I have of the set.

PS: Can she retire to the Bahamas? I suspect not!

    Many thanks Kev.
    These pen cases should be marked gold or silver somewhere, I suppose?
    Where should she look?
  2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Thanks Kev. I have emailed her that I have posted the item I suspect that it is a little late for her to be up in Eire. I'll post her replies when I get them, though I'm trying to get her to reply here on CW too.

    I'm especially grateful for your knowledgeable comments and advice.

    A reply and thanks from Diana in Eire:

    "Hi cous
    Had to get a magnifying glass to see what was written on the pens, not an easy thing to find in Ardee.
    Anywhere here we go:
    the pen is leverless (if that is the correct word)
    and written on the end is "swan" pen

    You might get some help from the Fountain pen network. I see there is a question there right now. Gold, gold. gold !!~
