Sheaffer Desk Pen
Material: Celluloid w/ BHR taper
Date c. 1920s
|Nib: M 14K Lifetime
This desk pen is heavier, older, and more solid than the other ones listed. In addition to the gold band, the nib is solid gold, with a smooth buttery line. The taper is a threaded black hard rubber, that, sadly looks like it was used as an icepick. It’s still a gorgeous pen, and writes beautifully. I have a base for it, but I think it’s not original since it doesn’t quite fit correctly. Still, I sometimes rotate it out with the one of my other bases.
