This is a 1932 Ford “Patent Pen” Large plunger-fill in Red Mottled Hard Rubber. Extremely rare in Black, many, many times rarer in Red Mottled! A highly unusual pen with a unique filling mechanism! The barrel unscrews and removes to access the ink reservoir (which came both amber and clear) with its cork gasket. The pen fills on the pull stroke and a sliding seal moves out of the way on the push stroke so the ink doesn’t expel. Shown both closed and open. More information can be found by clicking here. Medium nib, with a tad of flex. In Lambrou’s 1989 book, he mentions that these pens were produced under license for T.B. Ford, Ltd. by the Wyverne Pen Company, a major UK pen manufacturer based in London. Medium, flexible nib. New-old-stock. Mint. The largest model made. You’ll never find a nicer example!
