10943: Mabie Todd Fyne Poynt pencil: unusual oversize clipless model, 15 cm long, mottled hard rubber with multiple patterned gold filled bands, uses 1.1 mm lead; unmarked, but unquestionably made by Mabie Todd, and found in England. Multi-banded Mabie Todd pens and pencils of this sort are scarce and desirable, and normally always found in plain black hard rubber. This is the first mottled example we have ever seen. Condition excellent but for a circumferential scratch and divot mid-barrel (see detail).

10205: Mabie Todd Swan set in box: beautiful and solid New York-made lever-filler in 1/5 18K gold filled, 13.1 cm long, crisp rings chasing pattern (usually found on Edward Todd pens, but very uncommon for Mabie Todd). Matching 1.1 mm Fyne Poynt pencil, both pieces bear a neatly engraved 1928-dated inscription on their barrels. Nib is set tight, so writes a very fine line, but the tip is large enough that it could be adjusted to a medium fine if opened up. Set is like new with attractive age toning, no brassing but usual Mabie Todd seam lines visible where end caps soldered on pen.
