I was drawn to this material as it looked like amber. It is called Tortoise Lucite.
The pen is 6" capped. 5 1/8" uncapped. It does not post. Barrel is 9/16" just above the section.
The section is concave and 3/8" at the narrowest. The section is just shy of 3/4" (maybe 1/32").

I had also been looking for an eye dropper. I've filled this with Noodler's Eternal Brown.

The nib is 18k, made in Germany.

I've only had the pen for 2 days but I am thrilled. Getting to pick the material, and then watching your pen
being made is special. I hope to do a real review soon, but wanted
to post the pictures. 4 shots: empty; first load of ink; second load of ink; and full.

Very nice looking pen!

It is fun to know that there does not exist another pen exactly like yours anywhere.

Nice! I didn't realize the material was translucent and you could see the ink chamber, all the better. Congrats on your new pen.

Very nice! Your pictures give the pen that "warm" look that amber has, and that has always been a draw for me.

I'd been wondering what the eyedropper version filled would look like, and now I know. It is very appealing. Plus, I've my eye on a #76 as well. I like the largeness of the pen and the style. It seems it would be a good match for my Menlo.

I just ordered some pen blanks that really caught my eye (and my pocketbook) that I'm hoping to have Brian create a #76 from, in a beautiful transluscent red and black. I picked up the remaining stock, which was 5 blanks. Maybe I can squeeze a Herald or another Pearl out of it, too. I'm likely to go converter, though.

I also like that warm look you have conveyed so nicely. I was also very curious what an eyedropper version of this model would look like. I am thinking about my next Edison pen, and this one is a contender. If I were to get one, I would have to ask for a straight section, though. The hour glass shape is aesthetically appealing, but much too narrow for me.

Congratulations on your new pen. It is an eye catcher. How's the nib? Is it made by Bock?

Beautiful pen!

Would be interesting to hear your thoughts about it now since you've had it for several months now....
