A rather glamorous fountain pen from Laban with a sterling silver barrel, black resin cap, and pocket clip and cap band adorned by sparkling Swarovski crystals. This is an old stock pen that has been sitting in my storeroom for several years, It has only been taken out of its presentation box to be photographed, so it is still in pristine condition. The cap has a silver crown, a glossy black resin body, and a silver cap band. The pocket clip is articulated at the top and has a row of Swarovski crystals mounted down the stem. The cap band has two rows of crystals going around the circumference. The sterling silver barrel is plain and polished and has a large and complete Birmingham hallmark dated to 2009. The cap unscrews to reveal a silver finger grip which flares out at the front and a two-tone steel Laban nib in a medium point. The gripping section unscrews and inside the barrel is the original International sized ink cartridge. You could also use standard International ink converters (not included) if you prefer. The original ivory-coloured faux lizard skin box is also in lovely condition.It includes 4 large crystals in the upper surface of the lid. Inside the box is a velveteen pouch, and the original instruction booklet.
A very distinctive and glitzy pen. This model has now been discontinued and I have never seen any for sale second-hand.
