Product Information

The SWELL Pen     SAFETY EYEDROPPER

'SWELL' were a French pen manufacturer operating in the 1920s. Despite a lot of research that's about all I know of them!

This is their No 15 Safety pen in beautiful RED RIPPLE with prominent twin gold plated bands.

c1925 or perhaps a little earlier. Measures 130mm (5 1/4") closed.

Fitted with a plated accomodation clip. These pens did not have a fixed pocket clip.

The barrel imprint is 'The "SWELL" Pen Modele Safety.'  '15' is on the base of the barrel.

Warranted 14ct Gold nib, possibly original. BROAD flexible nib, writes very smoothly.

This is a Safety Pen. Turn the end of the barrel and the nib appears. Turn the knob the other way and it retracts.

Mechanism is in perfect working order having been dismantled and cleaned.

Pen is in very good condition. One or two usage marks at the base of the barrel hardly noticeable - otherwise absolutely beautiful.

A very rare Safety indeed. A gem of a collector's item.
