This is a superb example of this early Swan Self Filling Fountain Pen, this is the 242/53 which was made in the USA and dates from around 1927.

The pen is finished in the rare and wonderful Orange marble. The imprint on the barrel end shows "242/53" The pen is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The colours are clear and deep and the pen is in fabulous condition apart from a little pitting to the lever.

The No.2 Medium Flex nib writes smoothly and gives a lovely shape to your writing.

Note this is not my pen, I'm taking care of the pensharing logistics on behalf of a friend.

Choice of ink:
By default, the pen will be empty and clean. But I do have a wide range of inks which are all listed on my profile. If you fancy trying something, let me know and I'll either fill the pen or send a sample (depending on ease of packaging etc)
