No one seems to know what it is, I even took it to the Miami Pen Show with me and had Andreas Lambrou, author of Fountain Pens of the World look at it. He thought that it was probably British and since it came to me from an FPN member in Wales, it has thus been dubbed "The Unknown Brit."
This is actually a nice little pen. When I purchased it I knew that it was unnamed and that it had a broken clip, so I removed the clip, turning it into a clipless and named it.
The main reason I purchased it, and fairly inexpensively, is the lovely little flexible warranted nib. I'm horrible with flex but I keep on trying and this little nib is fun to play with.
Note - the paper is, as usual, Rhodia Bloc No. 16.
