W E L C O M E. You are lookin at a true Unique antique or semi antique. 1930's 1940s Mabie Todd Co.
"Jackdaw" with real toledo art (hand made), made in. Toledo, Spain, usually called a "Toledo overlay"(Toledo art damascene). This is by far the. Most beautiful fountain pen and extreeme rare.Steel, engraved and guilded with 24 carats gold, which appears to me to be gold. Leaf, but could be gold plate. I do not know what the black material. Is in the negative spaces of the design.
Most of the old examples of. These overlays that I have seen were very worn and rusted. Nicest antique example of this type of work that I have seen on a pen.
There is a short split in a seam in the. Cap overlay and I think it separated at the time the overlay was. I removed the old ink sac(glass) and did not replace. It, because I did not want to handle the pen or use it, to preserve.
I feel like I have been the steward of this pen. The cap, barrel and section are made of mottled red and black. The feed is marked "Jackdaw".The nib is marked Jackdaw. 14Carats t - Made in England.
Scarcity - I have seen a couple of Jackdaws. But not identical to this one, and heard of another, but it is hard for me to. Be able to judge how many of them might be out there.
There were not very many of these made. I have to limit the amount of. Photos here, but if you have serious interest in purchasing the pen, I. Can send you more photos.
The cap end is marked ORO 24 Kts. The pen comes without a sac needs to be replaced. Please note that insured items can t be at the same time express. The item "Semi antique Mabie Todd Co. Jackdaw toledo fountain pen 24 carats gold nos" is in sale since Monday, September 25, 2017.
