This modernistic design vintage fountain pen called the “Skyline” was made in America by the Wahl Eversharp Pen Co. in 1943. It is a rare example of this model made of solid 14 karat solid gold – as marked on the otherwise plain and smooth cap and barrel. The cap is an unusual design and was known as the “Derby” cap. The Skyline, with its modern and distinctive outline, was the company’s most successful fountain pen. This superb vintage fountain pen is a good weight and balance in the hand and measures 138mm with cap on and 154mm with cap on barrel end. The text around the cap crown reads “EVERSHARP SKYLINE PAT. MADE IN USA”. The clip carries the Eversharp brand. The smooth fine to medium firm nib states “Eversharp 14k Made in USA” and is a pleasure to use. Overall the pen is in good condition. The cap is clear of dings. There are some minor dings on the barrel – but this seems to be common with the solid gold top of the range version of this model. A rare pen from an excellent manufacturer that will once again serve well as an everyday writer and will certainly add style and value to a vintage fountain pen collection. My apologies for the light reflection in the montage. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you can select your method of payment.
