You don’t see these boxes often; I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one before. It’s similar in dimensions and simplicity of design to those made by Conway Stewart at the time, i.e. the mid-fifties. The only praise I can give it is that it has survived well and the sans-serif font is clear and suitable for purpose. Otherwise it’s charmless, especially compared with the boxes turned out by Mabie Todd some years prior. Those exuded confidence and pride in the product whereas this is a cheap afterthought made by a company that no longer believed in fountain pens
Luckily the pen that it contained when it came to me is inappropriate to the box, a sound, efficient and beautiful late thirties Swan.
