Product Information

MENTMORE Auto-Flow Fountain Pen   Lever Fill

SOLD  05/2020

  

Very early Auto-Flow in Hard Rubber or Vulcanite with barleycorn pattern. Dates to around 1933.

Interesting pen in that at 5 1/8 ins capped it is slightly longer than the normal Auto-flows and even more so in that it has much shallower cap stud. The barrel at 3 1/2 ins is about 1/4 ins longer than later Auto-flows. It also feels much more 'chunky' than the later Auto-Flows.

Lever filler - gold plated trim - single cap band - ballend pocket clip with Mentmore logo.

Barrel imprint 'Mentmore Auto-Flow Made in England.

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped 'Mentmore Osmi Iridium 14ct Gold. In excellent condition - semi-flex MEDIUM nib - very nice smooth writer.

Lever filler - fully serviced with new sac. There is one fin missing on the ladder feed which doesn't affect writing performance. I would have replaced it but at the moment don't have a spare.

Pen is in very good used condition. Has retained good colouring - no cracks or splits.

An interesting one for the Mentmore collector I think, but still a super pen to use.
