Maker: Diamond Point
Apart from the point impression, this is an extremely generic example of a pen from the first decade of the 20th century of slightly greater than bargain status. The overlay gives it a certain panache, although it also marks the maker as a bit of a corner-cutter. Most overlays are done in precious metal, but this one is plated. It still looks nice, but the potential remains for the pen to be covered one day in a mere brass (or something similar) framework.
