Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 317

Here's another one of Stuart's newest acquisitions - a vintage Sheaffer desk set & matching inkwell made by Silver Crest ...

Stuart writes: "The set has a two-tone bronze base made by Silver Crest of Buffalo, a well-known maker of decorative bronze pieces. It’s fitted with a top-of-the-line Lifetime Sheaffer desk pen."

"Sheaffer called the two-tone bronze Duo Bronze, and offered several sets with this beautiful finish." (see pg. 15 of this 1941 Sheaffer catalog)

"The set includes the matching inkwell...

....which makes for a stunning and impressive ensemble."

What a great set! Thank you, Stuart, for sending in photos of it for our pen club's blog :)
