1910-20s Mabie Todd - Swan Safety Pen (BCHR, safety/eyedropper, 14k EF Flex/Superflex nib). Measures 4 1/2" capped and 5 7/18" posted. Mabie Todd safeties are uncommon as they were manufactured in England for the French market exclusively, safeties being particularly popular in France. This pen is marked "P.R.2" on the blindcap, which presumably designates a #2 size "Self-PRopelling Pen," Like the other safeties below, this pen features a nib that retracts into the barrel when the blindcap on the end of the barrel is turned (cf. the modern Montblanc Boheme), allowing one to fill the pen like an eyedropper by injecting ink directly into the section. Improving on the design of the standard eyedropper, safeties are so-called because the section creates a leak-proof seal with the inner cap when the pen is capped (once nib is retracted), ensuring that no ink leaks into the cap when the pen is carried and jostled around. When the nib is fully protracted to write, another seal is created behind it to keep ink in the barrel. This pen was clipless from the factory (no holes drilled for a clip), but came to me with a beautifully ornate accommodation clip in brass(?): a Romanesque design with a soldier's head surrounded with 3 Griffins. 14k Osmia #2 nib delivers Super-flexible variation with flexible softness, laying down a smooth and consistent EF line that widens to a BBB+ under moderate pressure.
