Boots the Chemist provided us with lots of excellent pens over the years, most notably by Burnham and De La Rue. The De La Rue versions especially, are very fine pens with outstanding nibs.
This is probably the earliest pen, the “Dorothy”. I don’t know who made it – perhaps De La Rue?
It’s a typical early twentieth century eyedropper filler. The feed is of the over-and-under type.
I seem to have a vague memory of the “Dorothy” pen but we haven’t discussed it here before and I can’t find it in my notes. I think it just fell out of my head like so much else.
