Never one without two!

After the reaction yesterday that it was some time since there had been a pencil... Here's another!

This is one I use daily, it is nicely balanced and feels full of quality. Along with my fountain pens I use this for several hours a day and feel truly attached to it.

It is French made (yep sometimes they make good things that don't come in a bottle) has a solid silver body and what I suspect are ebonite extremities. The internal mechanism is brass.

My guess would be 1920's or 30's but there is no makers name. The silver marks in France from this period don't give a date or a maker.

Any ideas?

    Hi Kevin,
    Ask and thee shall receive ;)
    I couldn't possibly put all my pens up, but I'll post my favourite daily use pen to start things rolling, then make some selections for you all.

    Welcome to the CW Forum and glad to see Kevin and Steve have some one to converse with on these type of pieces, they know a lot about them and I see hours of entertainment between your's and their's, plus education for me.
