GIANT ‘Display’ Fountain Pen by Sheaffer
Price Code: ££££
An enormous polished metal ‘display’ fountain pen made by the famous American pen company Sheaffer, created to promote their range of gold and silver filigree and black enamelled fountain pens. The barrel and cap of the pen is realistically modelled as an exact replica of the actual pen, right down to the stamped 14K 585 gold ‘nib’, clip and distinctive ‘White Dot’ logo of the brand. The centre band is stamped SHEAFFER as is the nib. Presented in a black calfskin presentation case.
Length: 32 inches (82 cm).
The Sheaffer Pen Corp. was founded by Walter A. Sheaffer, an Iowa jeweller in 1913 and remains one of the best known fine pen brands in the world. Distinctive by its use of a ‘White Dot’ originally promoted in 1924, this detail still features on all Sheaffer pen designs and was initially intended as an indicator that the pens were ‘unconditionally guaranteed for a lifetime’.
