Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 482

 Here's one more vintage pen review before we switch to modern ones for a bit----a set that was inspired by Parker's iconic vintage 'Duofold' "Big Red" model!

Christopher: "A while back, I acquired an impressive ‘Big Red’ design Eclipse from the early 1920s. Then, just the other day, a matching mechanical pencil came my way. After servicing both items, I really thought they deserved to be housed in a proper vintage pen case with suitable related ephemera. As luck would have it, I had picked up just the right display box locally. It was not rocket science to make an attractive tie down insert card and equip it with elasticated cords. As for the related Eclipse ribbon and the Montgomery Ward Department Store warranty card, those were all available on the internet with a bit of digging. I am very pleased and satisfied with the end result. which will be enjoyed whenever I use this lovely Eclipse set."

Our thanks to Christopher for his review of this nice vintage set; we'll be back with more of his reviews in the next week or so :)
