A Green Mabled Swan - What Color? Not A 41...

Hi,

 

I got this Swan lately, but there is no number on my pen...

It seems to be a war time pen, the lever is chromium colored.
The green one on page 235 in the new book by Steven Hull looks similar...

Any ideas what color code this could be?

The color is beautiful, but not familiar to me. Not too difficult to replace the clip when you find the part! That pen deserves to be completed.

Yes non-standard (for a Swan) green arble. Things were of course difficult int he 1940s and manufacturers used what they could get. That material reminds me of a Conway Stewart Dinky I once had.

Hi Greenie,

 

sure it deserves a matching clip.

A well known Swan friend here can help me to complete. Thank you, C.! :-)

 

Greetings

Hi!

Now that I compare I see the color is a bit different from yours.

 

Yep, your's look like a typical 41 color, more black in it here.

But newer mind, it's always nice to see more mabled Swans. :-)

 

Enjoy and best wishes

Jens

Attempting to upload a photo, both of the Swan and a similar Swallow. fpn_1588958528__img_20200503_154723224.j

 

Gosh! They seem to be made of identical stock! Very nice colour!

 

I'd say Schaumburg Swan's pen is lighter/more black - but, also a very nice colour.

 

I get so used to seeing black Swans, it's always a joy to see the coloured ones.

Hi,

 

... the pen is complete again!

It took me longer than expected as the broken original clip had left a piece inside the cap.

And it's nib is realligned, writes like a stubbish OF :-)

Well done, Jens! That's a great nib.

Thank You, Eachan.

 

Even in hard times MT made wonderful nibs and pens.

This one will be the next daily user, Diamine Green/Black should look fine here.

 

Best regards and stay well

Jens

      @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.
