a yellow mini pen for mellow yellow Monday

My husband is a collector of old fountain pens. Recently he has been cataloging his collection and I have been photographing them for him. Yesterday he showed me this lovely yellow 'mini' pen. as you can see by the measuring grid above it is quite mini. with its cap on , shown above, it measures less than 4 inches in length.
This small pen is a golden pearl' mini (1920's) enduro fountain pen The background fabric seemed perfect to use for these photos having a winter theme of white snowflakes on a yellow sky? making both the season and yellow theme perfect for this posting.
This is a favourite pen of mine!
Got pictures with yellow?
