Swan Eyedropper Fountain Pen, c1910, sterling, chased twist pattern, 5 5/16 inches closed, this pen is the same size as a Waterman #404 (NOT a slim 2 size pen), no engraving to cartouche, beautiful pen - no issues, clean ends, nib is crazy broad and VERY flexible, I have my doubts about how reliable a pen like this would be??.....it writes but no guarantee that it will perform as consistently as a lever or button filler, Exc, $2600, Item #SW226
