Eversharp Coronet Gold Filled fountain pen pencil set
– Jewellery grade
– Gold Filled Filigree Overlay Cap
Up here is a vintage Eversharp CORONET Fountain pen & pencil set, which was manufactured in USA circa 1936-1941. The pen is in excellent condition, without any damage, only showing minor wears due to age.
The Coronet is widely held up as the acme of Art Deco pen design. It is certainly one of the most architectural of pens, strongly reminiscent of such American Deco icons as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building. When introduced towards the end of 1936, advertisements boldly announced “GOLD IS BACK!”; and also “The new Wahl-Eversharp Coronet Pens and Pencils are manufactured for sale by jewelers only”. The design and marketing attempted to push the model more into the realm of the jewelry market.
The pen set here is a good example of the model. It is in gold filled; without any personalization, ding, dent, damage; only some minor wears due to age.
The pen comes with Eversharp’s Safety Ink Shut-Off. Yet the lever filling system is not working. Yet this is a nice pen set for your collection.
