Swan Minor SM1/58

This pen was advertised as green marbled, something you don’t find among Swan Minors. The photographs were no help but I placed a bid anyway. I got the pen and when it arrived it turned out to be Marine Bronze which, admittedly, has some green in the mix.

Marine Bronze is a mixture of russet (or bronze), green and black but saying that doesn’t begin to describe the subtle allure of the pattern.

Minors are always great pens with the elegant stepped clip and invariably a lively nib. This one is no exception, a stub with flex.
