I just found this forum and it seems to be just the place to possibly help with a problem that's about 60 years old! All I have to do now is work out whereabouts will be the correct place to post it!


The pen is an ancient Mabie Todd item from around the turn of the 20th century, any ideas on where I should post the request with photos would be useful please.

Hello, Welcome. Where in the UK are you?


The photo could be posted on the Mabie Todd forum. You could contact Biro, as the successor company, but I doubt if they could replace it with another eye dropper, never mind a Mabie Todd & Bard as they dissolved in 1907!

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa. 

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!
