Mabie Todd Swan Chatelaine with Over/Under Feed – Wet Noodle

Mabie Todd Swan Chatelaine – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is made in New York Mabie Todd & Bard Swan eyedropper with over/under feed. The pen is in overall very good condition. The black hard rubber has faded to a dark brown. The chasing is worn but visible. Not a lot of texture left to it. The imprints are still readable though worn. The beautiful repousse work, gold-filled band and chain are all in very nice condition with no brassing that I can see. There are some scratches on the section from putting the cap on and off. The 14kt. Swan nib is a soft, near paintbrush wet noodle. It writes normally as a smooth and wet F (0.5mm) and flexes with ease up to 2.3mm (BBB+). And it just pours on the ink when flexing. It’s definitely a WET noodle. No railroads here. You can see some of the ridiculous amounts of sheen you will get with this pen. Unfortunately that wetness does reduce some of the responsiveness, but it sure is fun.  (See Price Here)
