A repair box, with a parts pricelist. Not sure of the date. The zodiac stones seems pasted in probably by the repairman.

"Gold nib size 8 - 17/6d (87½p)"!!!

 

I suppose that there were none left at the bottom of the box?

 

A wonderful thing altogether.

An excellent piece of ephemera...and definitely a great bit of Swan history.

Marc, now the only thing left to do for you is to refill this box again.
