I just received this Bayard Superstyl 650 from ebay seller Ringsmith999, whom I recommend.

 

The pen is circa 1940s and the photographs just don't do it justice.

The nib is marked 18 ct, size 50 with the crossed nibs and the P and F on either side. Bayard, Fabrication Francaise and stylo sans reproche appear on the pen barrel with 650 at the end.

 

I've used a Henri Cartier-Bresson photograph of the great French painter Pierre Bonnard for the background and the writing sample is a quote of Cartier-Bresson's in Akkerman Passage Blauw on Tomoe River paper.

 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks so much! Bayards come in a variety of beautiful colors and designs. Even black pens, which some might deem pedestrian, are beautiful in the Bayard line.

Thanks so much! They do look like mosaic tiles and I was pleasantly surprised by the shimmer and glimmer of the shades of grey and gold, especially when highlighted by the sunlight.

Thanks so much, D.ick. Much appreciated. I have the LE8 that I want to re-sac before I photograph it and I'm waiting on two more Bayards in the post. :wub:

"Writing is 1/3 nib width & flex, 1/3 paper and 1/3 ink. In that order."Bo Bo Olson

"No one needs to rotate a pen while using an oblique, in fact, that's against the whole concept of an oblique, which is to give you shading without any special effort."Professor Propas, 24 December 2010

 

"IMHO, the only advantage of the 149 is increased girth if needed, increased gold if wanted and increased prestige if perceived. I have three, but hardly ever use them. After all, they hold the same amount of ink as a 146."FredRydr, 12 March 2015

Thank you, Tim. If it hadn't been for you, I may never have discovered the beauty of a Bayard.

 

I dig it! I enjoy checking out your Bayard finds.

Thank you!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
