Type  Lever Fill Fountain Pen

Product Name  "The Tourist", as written on the barrel.

Manufacturer and Year   Morrison Fountain Pen Company, New York -- 1930s. Morrison was one of the third tier pen makers.

Length  5-1/4"

Filling System  Lever filler, restored here at Peyton Street Pens with a new sac.

Color  Black chased plastic, probably radite, with an angled check mark pattern. It has a 3/32" 1/20th 18k gold filled cap band. and a pattern on the lever.

Nib  MEDIUM Crisp Italic 14k nib. There is a nick on the side of the nib and some marks on the face. Because it is a crisp italic, it has a specific "sweet spot" and orientation which you'll need to find. With the nib fighting the correct orientation, some users may find it feels scratchy and snags the paper. See the writing sample below.

Condition   Excellent + condition. The black parts look perfect with no marks and pristine chasing. The cap band has some brassing on the edges. The clip and lever are almost entirely brassed. The barrel has a very clear imprint. The primary wear is on the nib.
