Original Boxes - Swan 242

Dear all,

I have the good fortune of a Swan 242 1/2 50 in my collection. My pen came with its original guarantee slip (fun for a 100 years on), and in a presentation box. However, as far as I can see in the advertising, Mabie Todd didnt make presentation boxes for single pens (only pens with pencils) for this model and at this time? I can only assume the branded, cardboard box the pen came was discarded at some point and the guarantee and pen itself transposed. Although it seems strange that someone went to such effort to conserve the form, unfilled in and redundant?

Aside - Im intrigued to know what the packaging options were for this pen. Perhaps one day Ill cross paths with something period and correct in which to make this lovely jade example at home!

Best.

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
