Good morning, my first post having emigrated from the world of antique clocks. My pen knowledge is slowly accumulating but I'm still very much at the novice stage.
So my tactic at the moment is to read as many reference books as possible and to buy up plenty of cheapish pens at auction, take them apart and learn as much as I can.
This pen has got me confused. I'm guessing 40/50s and presumably French - I have bought a couple of Stylomines which are similar. The pen is quite bulky and just under 13cms long. The nib is embossed ??"Seciers" or similar but the script is indistinct. Beneath this is the letter C in a shield and then below this "Warranted" - the latter I presume confirming that it is 14K gold. The only other ID is to the head of the clip - in a semicircle - "DoubleOr18Carats" - which once again I'm guessing just confirms the gold content - I suspect the thick cap band is also gold.
So forgive my asking what may be a very simple question to you lot - any ideas as to manufacturer/model ??
