I picked up this tiny unusual quill nib pen but know nothing about it except its possibly a French tourist Pen.
The pen closes into a capsule form hiding the nib inside, reversing the end of the capsule forms it into a working dip pen. The Pen has a sticker depicting the names of French locations, Chinon, Place Jeanne d'Arc, P. DUTERTRE and HOTEL DE L'UNION. The nib appears to be plastic carved into normal nib shape with crease down center, may also be Feather shaft/quill but unsure.
Body is steel.

From a post elsewhere, they believe its from a hotel where they supplied complimentary writing materials to guests like some hotel supply ball point pens and such these days. I just wish I know general era.
