Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 86

A couple of months ago, Stuart acquired another lovely vintage desk set made by Sheaffer...

Stuart: "The set from Switzerland arrived this afternoon, it took only nine days point to point!"


"I’m thrilled with it - you can see how beautiful the base is, and the pen has been restored so it’s working."  

 "The nib is a No. 3 with an XF point, firm and very fine as is typical of Sheaffer.  It’s a plain gold nib, so probably the economy desk-pen Sheaffer offered at the time.  Still a wonderful pen!"

A few days later, Stuart sent me another email--"A cool thing about the teardrop-shaped set that arrived the other day - right now it’s getting sun through the window blinds, and the stone is translucent and with the light shining on it it shows depth.  Very beautiful!  The marble really comes alive with the light on it."

 Thank you, Stuart, for sharing another great vintage acquisition with us for our club's virtual "show & tell"!
