    I really couldn't say which company made this ink well, and I am not even sure if it is pre or post war. I could say pre war based on the uranium glass and the early plastic, but these features did continue for a while after the war so, you know, a guess it is.
    There is some sponge left in the base of the nib wipe well, barely stained, and it is a plastic sponge. When was it introduced does anyone know? I guess it could have been replaced at some stage.
    The glass glows nicely, and it has nice brass hinges and fittings.
    Pass on any ideas for age all!
