Hello all,

 

I am new to vintage flex pens and was looking to own one , recently i had come across a trusted seller here in India and he suggested this one. Can anyone kindly tell me whether it is authentic and is flex nib?

 

He says it is swan black bird eye dropper. sharing the images for reference.

It appears to be an authentic Mabie Todd Blackbird (there's no such thing as a Swan Blackbird) but no-one can tell whether the nib is flexible from a photograph.

As said, it is a Mabie Todd Blackbird (as opposed to a MT Swan), early to mid fifties pen with a Swan No 1 nib.

Eye dropper pens post war were virtually only sent to markets in the tropics where rubbers sacs deteriorated quickly.
