MAXIM Mechanical Pencil

SOLD  02/2020

This beautiful Maxim pencil was produced in the 1920/30s by the SOUTHPORT MAXIM  PENCIL Co LTD of Virginia St Southport Lancs.They also produced fountain pens and Stylo pens. Their southern agents were L&H Themans who operated out of Hatton Garden in London.

Our pencil is in 1/20th10ct Rolled Gold in a lovely squares or chequered pattern.  It has an accomodation pocket clip which I am quite sure would be original.

     

Pencil measures 140mm. Imprints around the top say 'MAXIM 1/20th 10ct Rolled gold' and 'Patent applied for No 10310' around the cone.

Twist action propel and repel pencil in perfect working order.

Twist top to operate - unscrew cone to replace leads.  Takes readily available 1.1mm lead, same as Yard O Led.

Supplied in pouch for everyday protection.

In excellent condition - no dings/dents - incredible for its age.

Beautiful quality pencil - I don't really want to part with it. Wonder if someone in Southport will buy it?

Grateful once again to Steve Hull's book The English Fountain Pen Industry 1875 to 1975 for background info. https://www.englishpenbooks.co.uk/
