An English Swan Eternal No. 48 in red mottled hard rubber with gold filled trim. The barrel imprint is:
“SWAN SELF FILLER ETERNAL - MABIE TODD & Co Ltd - MADE IN ENGLAND”
The big Swan number 8 14k nib is a soft medium writer with some nice flex.
Closed the pen is 138mm and when the cap is posted, 176mm.
CONDITION: very good, excellent colour, quite crisp barrel imprint, brassing on the top cap band, brassing on the front and ball of the clip. The nib is very smooth with lots of tipping; two of the feed combs are joined (shown in the feed picture) but this does not affect the feed performance and the nib is a lovely smooth writer.
