Everyone is invited to post their patterns of gold filled (or solid gold) lever fillers.

 

I do not aggressively collect these, but this was a new pattern to me.  I will add pictures of the other patterns I have over the coming weeks. I hope others will also contribute.

That is indeed unusual and delightful.

 

Here's a New York Swan I have just acquired

This is timely, I recently was able to acquire this one which I think is pretty attractive.  Nib isn't Swan though, says "Laughlin Manufacturing Company"

This is a pattern that I have called "Alternating Slash" in my database.  Marked Swan Pen Mabie Todd and Co NY with a MT & Co 2 NY nib.  Lever filler from the 1920s.  Click on pic for closeup.

I have seen this pattern referred to as "Rosette". Pen marked Mabie Todd and Co NY. Nib is Swan 2, made in...( not pulling it to see).  Click on pic for closeup.

This pen has the "Chain Link" pattern. The top of the cap is domed like earlier Swan pens. It also has the uncommon split lever, dating the pen to 1919.

I will be presumptive that Cob won't mind my taking a portion of an old post of his to show what appears to be a "Barleycorn" pattern gold filled Swan lever pen.

Let's come up with a name for the pattern on Cob's pen in post #2. 

Ripple?

Squiggle?

 

Someone out there can surely do better!
