Product Information

DAILY HERALD SET Fountain Pen and Propelling Pencil.

These sets were sold by the English newspaper the Daily Herald to their readers in 1935.  

There was no makers' name on any of the sets but informed opinion is that that the were probably made in England by WYVERN.

This is a lovely matching set in RED MOTTLE or RED RIPPLE with gold plated trim.

FOUNTAIN PEN - measures a nice 135mm (51/4") capped  - domed cap stud - bandless cap - lever filler. Matching mottled section and feed.

14ct Gold nib stamped 'Warranted 14ct 1st Quality.'  Semi-flexible MEDIUM. Writes ok but has been well used.

Lever filler - Fully serviced and re-sacced.

PROPELLING PENCIL - matching propel/repel twist action pencil in perfect working order. Takes readily available 1.1mm leads. Two spare leads in barrel.

In multi-coloured card box which is a little on the faded and grubby side and has replacement inner. It does however appear to be original - please see http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1930s-boxed-fountain-pen-pencil-set-424254824

Both pen and pencil are in excellent condition - very lightest of normal usage marks, no cracks, splits or scratches.

Really nice quality set in lovely colours. Now quite a collector's item.
