This pencil box was used by my grandmother when she was a girl. It includes three pens, a spare nib, a pencil, and a folding ruler. This is certainly a treasure! It dates to the early 1930's.

    Thank you for all the love!

    Thank you! I like the ruler especially as well. The folding rule I use for work is also a lufkin!

    This is delightful, and I'm so glad that you have this beautiful ensemble to remind you of your grandmother! I love all of it!

    I did a double-take when I saw the top pen - thought for a moment that it was equipped for calligraphy -- and perhaps it is, though would be suitable for small font only with that nib. AR8Jason, can you please tell us a bit more about the top pen? I don't recognize it. Thanks!

    Thank you very much, AR8Jason!!! As always, a generous and fine response! : )

    Hey y'all! Thank you for the kind words on my grandmother's school supplies. They are a dear treasure to me as she passed away when I was still young. In fact all three of the pens have that lever to fill them, they just wouldn't sit that way for the photos. I checked the nib of the dark blue pen, and it says Eclipse 14 KT NY. Eclipse is in a little pointy oval. I guess I'm a little surprised, they were never a wealthy family. Thank you for the insights!

    The brown marbled pen says Wearever on the clip and the nib says Stainless 14 K Gold Plated.

    The nib in the green marbled pen says Welsh Mfg Co Stainless Providence RI.

    My grandmother lived in Rhode Island. I really appreciate the help! I had no idea really about the pens.

    Thank you Kevin, I think it's fair to say that they have more value to me than the market thanks to the family connection. I appreciate you taking the time!

    Well it's a nice memory though!
