This Tibaldi Infrangible was from a period of transition in Tibaldi pens from lever-fillers to button fillers and the full adoption of celluloid styling. This Infrangible (means “unbreakable”, a branding term used often by Italian pen makers then), a mid-level pen from the later 1930s, is marbled brown with silver flecks and bars. It is an attractive pen, in nickel plated trim and a bright yellow imprint. The cap is stepped, in nickel with a black jewel on top. The base of the barrel is black, giving the appearance of having a blind cap. At 12cm capped, it is full-sized, and fits very nicely in the hand. The clip is rectangular, with full-length vertical ridging; it shows a bit of pitting but is attractive. The three cap rings and lever are clean and intact. This pen’s nib is a Morans, another Italian pen manufacturer; it is long-tined, delicate, and writes a fine to medium line with good shading. A very nice, affordable example of Italian workmanship.
