Aikin Lambert Eyedropper – Wet Noodle  (On Ebay)

Aikin Lambert was a quality pen maker that was eventually bought out by Waterman. This pen, however, would far predate that buyout. This is an early 1900s eyedropper in BCHR. The pen is in fair condition with a couple of exceptions. The BCHR is still pretty black, though the cap is faded more to a darker brown. The chasing and imprints are still very crisp. The cap fits snuggly on the pen, but it is not original to the pen. Still it fits as well as the original and stays snug on the section. Also the gold filled repousse band on the back end of the barrel is split though it feels firmly secured to the barrel. There is little to no brassing on either band. This pen is equipped with a fairly rare Aikin Lambert holeless nib with the air hole located in the feed. This nib is a soft, paint brush wet noodle. It takes almost no pressure to get the nib to flex. It is wet, but for how wet and soft it is it still is pretty responsive. A great chance to get a very affordable wet noodle.
