We've put this English pen here because it is
really historic, rare, and in superb condition


SOLD !

Probably made around 1915, or earlier, it is
a syringe-filler, based on the original 1893 patent by
Woodruff Post (the Post Pen), and might well
have been manufactured in the USA and imported
to the UK, for sale in the shops of W.H.Smith & Son Ltd.

Long, with sharp and unmarked chasing,
this pen has the added attraction of having been
lovingly restored to working order (something
you hardly find at all in pens of this period).

The inscription is slightly worn
We think that the early nib is the original, and it
produces a MEDIUM/FINE flexible line

£100
