In our not-so humble opinion, the Wahl-Eversharp Doric was one of the most attractive art deco pens ever made. Sadly, many of them are decomposing through a process many call krazing. Wahl-Eversharp might have mastered design, but they hadn't, yet, perfected the formula for celluloid. Happily enough, this ruby red pen and pencil show no signs of krazing! They do show a fair amount of wear from use, but there are no cracks and the pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a close-up. You will write a very smooth, slightly dry fine line with its 14k gold nib. The pencil is an early clicker that still works. The nose cone is heavily brassed, as such we are hesitant to polish the clicker in the tail. Junior sized instruments. Pen measures 11.9cm capped.
