Hi, I posted this on the general forum and was advised to go local!

 

It's probably quite a lost hope but I was hoping some kind folk might help me to identify a lovely celluloid fountain pen I bought recently very cheaply. I suspect it's just a 'junk' pen but it's very attractive and blessed with a 14k warranted nib no. 6 which writes like a dream with flex xf - bb. It has no identifying marks at all except on the clip which offers me "pat no. 83573", which I suspect refers only to the clip type. It's a shortie at only 4.5" capped but it's such a sweetie it would be lovely to put a name to it. :)

 

I'm new to pens, so hoping wiser heads might give me a clue. Couple of pics...

Is there anything written on the diamond shape on the clip? Wish I could help....it's very pretty!

I doubt it's English; the filler lever is typical of 1930s American production as indeed is the clip; made by Eclipse perhaps?

I would say it is a third tier American pen but can't offer a manufacturer.

 

Third tier but blessed with good celluloid and a gold nib. Probably not worth much but worth owning!

I have a very similar pen, the same celluloid but in brown, and little differences in the clip... it is a Wereaver

I hope it helps...

Thanks guys!

 

Alex, there's nothing on the clip but the pat. no.. My first instinct, without any specific knowledge, mind, was that it was American. On another forum, I noticed someone else had the same Pat. No. on the clip of a Diamond Point. But I don't know whether this means it's a 3rd tier Diamond Point (their clip design seems to vary) or just patented clip type...?

 

I guess I'll have to just enjoy using it - I'm definitely keeping it :)

I do not have the link, but patents can be researched on-line. Perhaps you might find a little joy there? On the other hand a number of makes of pen have the famous 1915 patent step clip found on so many Mabie Todds!

Hi Cob, I did actually wade through some of the patent links that Richard Binder put up on his excellent website but I'm afraid they were a bit confusing and I didn't get anywhere. I shall have to stock up on patience and give it another go.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
