Type  Ornate sterling dip pen holder/handle with flexible Leroy Fairchild nib

Product Name  Marked 114 on the sterling.

Manufacturer and Year  Edward Todd & Co. (The Todd imprint is partially seen in the photo below.)

Length  6-3/8" (holder only, not counting nib)

Filling System  None, this is a dip pen so you dip the nib in ink. There's no ink reservoir and no feed, so you need to use the right ink and re-dip a lot.  You can't use regular fountain pen ink. (Our writing sample was done using Winsor & Newton drawing ink.)

Color  Sterling silver, with a lovely fiddlehead fern pattern on it. 

Nib  EXTRA FINE nib is marked Leroy Fairchild & Co. No tipping material, and it's a little scratchy. There's a bit of a bend in one tine of the nib, which we endeavored to straighten, and the tines flex uniformly. You are probably going to have to use something close to India ink .... we couldn't get more than a few strokes with fountain pen ink without having to re-dip, and we used Winsor & Newton drawing ink to get the writing sample below.

Condition  Gorgeous! No dents or dings or personalization.

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.
