Sorry that I can't help you with an ID of your pen.
Hopefully someone else can.
Love the colour and pattern.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.
Sorry I can't help with the identification of your pen - but it sure is a beauty!
To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Looks like a button filler missing its sack - probably a European clone of the Parker Duofold, maybe an Ingersol.
What does it say on the nib ? Looks like 'Warranted 14Karat' but I can't be sure.
I would ask in the 'Great Britain and Ireland' and 'Europe - Other Brands Forum' groups.

As AidenMark said it is a button filler. The button you show sits on the end of a pressure bar that runs down the side of the barrel. When you press the button down the bar deforms and presses against a rubber sac inside the barrel which is glued to the section with shellac.
An easy job to do once the barrel and section are separated. It probably has a screw fitting (just in case you are tempted to try and pull it out!). Sacs and pressure bars are fairly easy to obtain.
The nib looks Germanic in origin, possibly Osmia?, but everyone and his dog copied the original Duofold design! Are there any marks on the box or barrel (& sometimes cap) of the pen?

Welcome, from Reno, Nevada!
I do not know the brand of fountain pen that you have, and I can not tell you any more than others have already said. Most of the time when I purchase a "vintage" pen, I send it to someone who restores "vintage" pens.
