Pretty pen, and I'd not heard of that brand before.
Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

I own three O.E. Weidlich pens; an eyedropper filler, one exactly like yours except for color, and a desk pen. The eyedropper has a wonderful XXF flex nib that I enjoy using for correspondence. There isn't much out there regarding the history of Weidlichs but you can find a paragraph on the Richard's Pens website and I found the information below on the Pen Collecting For Anyone website.
O. E. Weidlich Pen Company was a pen manufacturing company in Cincinnati, Ohio; founded by Otto Emil Weidlich. He started business in 1889 and produced gold pen nibs, holders, stylographic pens, and fountain pens. The company closed in 1914, selling out to Betzler & Wilson of Akron, Ohio, which moved everything to Akron to expand its own production. O. E. Weidlich Co. formally dissolved in 1915.
It is interesting that you found a brochure from 1930 given the above information, unless there were two Weidlich Pen companies!

Beautiful! What is the nib like. I keep hoping I will find another nib like the one in my eyedropper filler, but I don't think it is very likely.
I will have to ask one of the members of my pen club about the Weidlich pens. He is almost an encyclopedia if knowledge regarding pens and their history. I will pass along anything I find out.
