This adorable itsy bitsy fountain pen was made for a lady to hang from a chatelaine, wear as a pendant, or keep in a purse. It was made by Salz Brothers in the 1920s and is called the Peter Pan (probably because it's never supposed to grow up into an adult-size pen).
The fountain pen nib is made of 14K yellow gold (tested). This pen was functional at one time but we can tell by the lever that's used to fill the pen with ink, that the ink bladder is not working. Most of these dried up over time and need replacing.
The pen measures 3 1/4 inches long with its loop on the cap. This could be hung from a chain to write a quick note to oneself or from a chatelaine of various tools and ladies' necessities.
The celluloid at the bottom of the pen shows a dark blue spot where the ink probably leaked at one time. The lever is secure but a bit loose without the bladder to latch onto. It's marked PETER PAN with the SB initials for the company. There are no breaks, cracks or repairs. The flowers have all their petals. The cap screws on securely. It's definitely the cutest little fountain pen we've ever seen.
