A friend has asked if I could get the pen pictured below identified.
It seems to be a transition between a dip pen and fountain pen, since it has features of both, but has no ink chamber in the barrel.
It has a very fine point which is extremely springy and flexible.
In spite of being a dip pen, it will write quite a few lines with a single dip into the ink.
Underneath it has what looks to be a fountain pen feed - but it isn't.
I think this fitment is what stores enough ink to write so many lines.
It comes with a cap fitted with pocket clip and an overall business like appearance.
There are no markings of any kind on the pen - and I would say was a budget priced item at the time it was made.
The spare nib is labelled Geo W Hughes Adjustable Nib - Birmingham - but is probably a separately purchased item, since I believe the Geo W Hughes Company only manufactured nibs.
I has a spare nib container, but I am not sure if this would have originally been supplied with the pen. Also the box it came in obviously belongs to another pen, but is interesting in itself.
