About This Pen
This is a beautiful and elegant Caran d’Ache Madison fountain pen from the 1970-80s. It is 13.8cm (5.4”) long and 1cm (.35”) thick, slender but full length, exceptionally well balanced although slim. Crown and tassie are plain gold plate, inserted domes. No cap rings, just solid plating at the very bottom of the cap and the top of barrel to match. The clip is the classic Caran d’Ache sword. The section is black resin. This pen has received very light use and shows no evidence of wear. There is a tiny imprint at the section end of the barrel that reads “Caran d’Ache Swiss Gold-Plate”. It has a grouped vertical engraved lines pattern, matching and continuous from barrel to cap. Note that the black line on the nib photo is an artifact of photography from the light box.
