I managed to win this pretty little number yesterday...I dont know if youd call the pattern Marble or Reverse Cracked Ice, but it looks in decent shape so should be fun to write with. Well know more when it gets here.

That is clearly an American Swan. The attractive material is similar to, but different from,  the English 47 material "Mosaic"

Thanks! I actually have another one, but the markings are much darker. They did make pretty pens with pretty nibs.

I was watching that auction. So glad you got it. This is a great pattern.  I just call it "black with green veins".   Swallow has the same pattern but with red veins.

That pen looks awesome. Congratulations. If ti writes half as good as it looks, it will be a wonder.

The pen arrived, and I dipped it into some Smoky Quartz to test. It writes a treat: not my flexiest nib, but its a little jammed into the section. Ill send it out for some mild restoration and hope I get it back before Christmas.
