A very beautiful sterling silver African Woods pen from Laban with the inlaid wooden bands in the cap. This is comprised of many different African tree species. The cap has a military style over-the-top metal pocket clip that is hinged and spring-loaded at the top. It has a good amount of positive movement there and should grip even the thickest fabric with ease. At the cap lip is a wide silver band with the "Laban" imprint. The sterling silver barrel bears a full UK hallmark, and is decorated with incised hoops, creating a very pleasing contrast between the bright polished barrel and the dark incisions. The finger grip is very slightly foxed, though this will probably polish out as this is sterling silver too - in any case, you'll probably not notice it without magnification. The two-tone steel nib is in a medium point. Unscrewing the barrel, you will find the original ink converter. You could also use standard International ink cartridges if you prefer. This pen is in excellent and barely used condition.
