Size: Length - 5 9/16 inches capped; 6 7/16 inches posted.
A lovely old stock Chinese pen. This is the Eagle pen. It is in excellent and undamaged condition and has never been used. The cap has a gold plated domed top. Below this is a gold plated band imprinted with the manufacturer's name, and a very nice wide and robust gold plated pocket clip. The end of the barrel narrows to allow the cap to post very firmly. In the centre of the barrel is a beautiful brushed and antiqued metal overlay with a relief decoration of the eagle in the pen's title. This is interspersed with Chinese characters, and a gold plated band top and bottom. The section is slightly textured and affords a very positive grip. The steel nib is partially gold plated and in a medium point.
The nib on this pen is very smooth and writes with a good wet and consistent medium width line.
