I just received this Bayard Superstyl 650 from ebay seller Ringsmith999, whom I recommend.

 

The pen is circa 1940s and the photographs just don't do it justice. 

The nib is marked 18 ct, size 50 with the crossed nibs and the P and F on either side. Bayard, Fabrication Francaise and stylo sans reproche appear on the pen barrel with 650 at the end. 

 

I've used a Henri Cartier-Bresson photograph of the great French painter Pierre Bonnard for the background and the writing sample is a quote of Cartier-Bresson's in Akkerman Passage Blauw on Tomoe River paper.

 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much! Bayards come in a variety of beautiful colors and designs. Even black pens, which some might deem pedestrian, are beautiful in the Bayard line.

 

Very handsome pen, congrats!

Enjoy!

Thanks so much! They do look like mosaic tiles and I was pleasantly surprised by the shimmer and glimmer of the shades of grey and gold, especially when highlighted by the sunlight.

 

Pretty... both pen and photography.

Thanks so much, D.ick. Much appreciated. I have the LE8 that I want to re-sac before I photograph it and I'm waiting on two more Bayards in the post.  :wub:

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived.  I have three, but hardly ever use them.  After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Thank you, Tim. If it hadn't been for you, I may never have discovered the beauty of a Bayard.

I dig it! I enjoy checking out your Bayard finds.
