I managed to win this pretty little number yesterday...I dont know if youd call the pattern Marble or Reverse Cracked Ice, but it looks in decent shape so should be fun to write with. Well know more when it gets here.

That is clearly an American Swan. The attractive material is similar to, but different from, the English 47 material "Mosaic"

Thanks! I actually have another one, but the markings are much darker. They did make pretty pens with pretty nibs.

I was watching that auction. So glad you got it. This is a great pattern. I just call it "black with green veins". Swallow has the same pattern but with red veins.

The pen arrived, and I dipped it into some Smoky Quartz to test. It writes a treat: not my flexiest nib, but its a little jammed into the section. Ill send it out for some mild restoration and hope I get it back before Christmas.

      @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.
