Excelsior De Bayard No. 560, 1938-1941

One of my latest Bayards from the seller amateur25 on ebay. André is a reputable, communicative seller.

 

Nib reads Excelsior, Monobloc, Pointe Blinde EF. Translated, this latter stipulation means advanced armored. The pen is inked with a combination of J. Herbin's Poussière de Lune and their Rouge Hematite

 

The background is India's Love Lyrics, arranged in verse by Laurence Hope and Illustrated by Byam Shaw, published in 1920. I found the book at a local library sale and it still has the pressed flowers placed there perhaps decades ago.

 

Books in background are The Alchemical Tradition in the Late Twentieth Century (ed. Richard Grossinger), On Love: a Philosophy for the Twenty-first Century by Luc Ferry, An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols by J.C. Cooper, The Architect of Desire by Suzannah Lessard, and Anatomy of the Psyche by Dr. Edward Edinger.

 

Thank you for looking!

Nice catch! I've never seen an Excelsior with that kind of pattern. Thought they were all black. Beautiful pen.

Thanks, Tim. Wait until you see the next one on its way to me! And there's a green one (circa 1950s) that will be arriving after that. Then, I'm taking a break!

Nice catch, you lucky girl :) (I had my Special 8 sent back, neither the nib or the feed belonged to it :angry: ).

This Excelsior has beautiful colors.

Thank you! I'm so sorry about the Special 8. It was sure beautiful. I do believe another will come along. Hope all is well with you and yours. xo
