Antique W F STANLEY lifting Nib Jointed Drawing Pen very rare museum piece. Beautiful antique W F STANLEY lifting Nib Jointed Drawing Pen. This 5-7/8 steel, brass, and bovine drawing pen has a spring inside the point to draw the tips of the point together when the screw is tightened to make a narrower line. The point is also jointed, so when the screw is removed, one side of the point may be opened to a 90° angle. In his influential 1866 volume on the construction and use of drawing instruments, he called this form of drawing pen a “lifting-nib” or “jointed” pen. It was supposed to be easier to clean than a standard drawing pen. Some examples of this pen are in the NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY, SCIENCE MUSEUM LONDON. Excellent condition with original spring, nice museum piece. This item is in the category “Collectables\Pens & Writing Equipment\Pens\Other Pens”.
