I have never seen anything quite like this so bear with me... Measuring about 8 1/4" long, this mechanical pencil appears to be a salesman's sample or store prop or display. It must be rare, as I've been collecting and selling for nearly 2 decades and have not seen this type of piece before. If anyone knows more about these, I would love to hear from you.
The lovely pencil is made of brass and is FULLY functional! That's right...it has a very thick lead point which mechanically puches out at the twist of the end piece. The only marking I could find was a "MADE IN GERMANY" hallmark around the top of it.
Rather than being round, the pencil is squared off and has lovely Art Deco criss crossed machine work on 4 sides. Alternating with these sides are blue enameled stripes. The top removes to open up the cylinder for extra leads, and it also has an eraser still present and intact. My guess is that this dates to the 1920s or 30s.
In gently used condition, I have included several views to try to illustrate the fine condition and craftsmanship that went into this piece. The enameling is in very good, near mint condition, and it appears to be original and free of any repairs or damage. Pefect for the most advanced of collectors, this is offered at less than my initial purchase price many years ago to encourage bidding.
PLEASE...pardon these pictures...they do NOT do justice to this piece and I'll attempt to take more images to more adequately and accurately depict this fine rarity!
