People risked their lives to build this pen! Those are real abalone shells set in this Sheaffer Balance Lifetime Junior. Twirl the pen in the light, and it is incredible watching the many shades of light reflecting of the lacquered shells. Real divers had to get them. We've restored this handsome vintage pen with a new ink sac. Lulu B. Hoyt once owned this pen. Although we have no idea who she is, she did have her name imprinted on this classic writing instrument. Click the headline for a close-up. No cracks in the pen, but there are moderate signs of wear from use. Its original two-tone 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth extra-fine to fine line. 12.1cm capped.
