Hi,

 

I'm a newbie to this site and wandering if anyone out there recognises this Mabie Todd Pen Set.

 

Fountain pen and pencil are a pink composite material with inset rings of yellow and blue

Pen measures 95mm capped, pencil measures 100mm

Pen Nib marked, MABIE TODD & CO, N,Y. 2 In a leather pouch marked MABIE TODD &post-132226-0-26191100-1475592700_thumb.jpgpost-132226-0-42362400-1475592675_thumb.jpgpost-132226-0-91805400-1475592641_thumb.jpg CO LTD

Yes, that is indeed an uncommon colour scheme. Its Mabie Todd colour is described as Fuschia. You have a rare and interesting set - a friend showed me on Sunday last an identical set in blue.

 

Your pen may be stamped F/92 where 92 is the model designation (F for Fuschia). It is said that the code though for your colour scheme is 93, but there is uncertainlty about this as around the time these pens were made (late 1920s) the colour codes between England and the US started to diverge - or so I believe.

 

The nib on your pen is a beauty: classic MT NY stub; probably nicely flexible too.

 

It looks as though the outfit was an import since the pouch carried the company name Mabie, Todd & Co Ltd - thus English so I expect that the set was sold here. However after about 90 years, almost anything could have happened!

 

A very nice find: well done!

Ah-ha! Ron Jukes! I saw that pair of beauties! What a treat to see them up close and in such excellent condition. You've really got a lovely set there. I've seen similar MT pens in blue and green but never the pink. Enjoy that nib!

      @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.
