Antique Gold & Mother Of Pearl Fairchild Telescoping Dip Pen Presentation Case For Sale
Up for sale is a lovelyAntique GOLD AND MOTHER OF PEARL FAIRCHILD TELESCOPING DIP PEN IN THE ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASE.
The pen measures 5" in length when the nib is inside. It extends to a full 6 1/2" when fully telescoped. Perhaps this was a great invention for hands of different sizes!
The body of the pen is hallmarked : FAIRCHILD with the numeral 4.
The nib is stamped: LEROY W. FAIRCHILD NEW YORK 4
The overall condition of the pen is good to very good. The gold is bright and shiny and the intricate design is lovely. There are no dings or dents and the sliding telescoping mechanism works just fine. The mother of pearl handle is in very nice shape with no scratches or cracks.
The nib has a little discoloration or rust to the backside, but that could probably be removed. The nib has a nice, sharp point and shows little wear. It slides into the pen for storage.
The box is fairly good. There is fading and signs of handling as shown in the photos. The ribbon which holds the pen in place is secure, and the box is relatively sturdy with the exception of one end that is missing the cardboard or light wood frame. On that end, the brocade velveteen type material just folds into place, so it is not noticeable on display. (Please check photo of this.)
The areas of concern show quite clearly in the photos, so please look carefully to make your own determination of condition.Feel free to ask questions prior to placing a offer.
