15745: Aikin Lambert eyedropper-filler in box: black hard rubber taper-cap with full gold filled filigree overlay, 14.8 cm long, narrow feed, #1 Aikin Lambert nib is an excellent writer but has a hairline crack under the section and coming up through the imprint which should be repaired if the nib is to be used extensively. Monogram on barrel cartouche, overlay on cap has shifted slightly (vent holes on overlay and liner do not line up perfectly), one small sealed hairline in hard rubber looks like a scratch. Overall excellent appearance, hard rubber has not been reblackened. Box hinge has been repaired.
