Welty Gold Filled Fountain Pen - Serviced And Working. Original Box.:
Welty's gold filled ring top, probably late 20's, smooth finish, no scrapes, gouges or spurious engravings. Negligible plating wear barring one area at the top of the barrel subject to abrasion when posting the cap.
It has had a recent sac replacement, all works fine, it is fitted with its original, generously sized Welty's Chicago 14ct nib a pleasant, smooth writing firm F/M nib.
Although this pen is pretty short capped, it becomes a standard length pen (approx 15cm) with the cap posted making it a pleasant pen to use. It is also noticeably thicker than the equivalent Waterman.
This pen also comes with an original Welt's branded box in abrown leatherette material with a creamish satin lining. This box also has space for a matching pencil, unfortunately missing.
Welty's may not be particularly well known, but it undeniably produced some high quality pens of which this is an excellent example.
A nice addition to someone's collection perhaps or a reliable every day user.....up to you.
