Product Information

SWAN BLACKBIRD TWIST FILL   DEMONSTRATOR Fountain Pen

SOLD  02/2019

Transparent demonstrator Blackbird in perfect working order.

This is the twist filler Blackbird produced in the early 1950s after Mabie Todd (makers of Swan) had been acquired by Biro.

Twist filler - unscrew the blind cap and turn the metal nurled knob at the end of the barrel. This lowers a cam which compresses the pressure bar to create the vacuum and turning the knob back the other way allows the pen to fill. All of the filling action can be clearly seen in the demonstrator barrel.

Correct 14 ct Gold nib stamped 'Blackbird 14ct MT&Co Made in England.' Nice flexibly MEDIUM nib - writes very smoothly.

In Swan Blackbird yellow/red box - not original to the pen but nice to have.

Pen is in good used condition - there is some ink staining to the inside of the cap.

Quite an unusual item. Still able to be used but also collectable.
