Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 129

Happy 2021, everyone! I thought we'd start the New Year with a lovely vintage figural desk set made by Sheaffer and acquired by VPCer Stuart last month...

Stuart: "Here’s three shots of the Sheaffer pheasant desk-set. The detail on the figurine is very fine - the spurs on the bird’s legs are present, and the hand-painted highlighting for the upper body and head is nicely done."

"There’s a groove cut in the base to serve as a pen-rest..."
"The pen needs a new sac as usual, but the nib is yet another nice Fine - a clean smooth line with a little shading to it.  Another winner, I’m very happy with this one! "

What a wonderful find! Many thanks to Stuart for sharing it with us :)
