Description

Details

Type  dip pen holder with nib

Product Name The holder is marked Mabie Todd & Co. No. 3

Manufacturer and Year Mabie Todd & Co., USA -- Late 1800s or early 1900s.

Length  5-7/8" with nib installed.

Filling System  Dip pen and holder with no ink reservoir. You dip the nib into ink and write.

Color  Pearlescent handle. It tapers towards the end and has a patterned gold filled gripping portion.

Nib  Extra Fine Flexible A W Faber New York #2 nib. It isn't marked as such, but we are confident that it is a gold nib. The tipping looks nice and the tines are extra soft. See the writing sample below. The nib is a little bit toothy but we wanted to protect the remaining tipping as much as possible. It has excellent hairlines. We used dip pen ink for the writing sample. Fountain pen ink was too thin to properly show off the line variation the nib is capable of.

Condition  Superior condition. The handle looks great with no chips. The handle has no marks and there is little brassing on the gold filled holder. The holder ships in a long latched case. The latch is not loose and the box stays closed well.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
