ME199 Platignum Bijou Fountain Pen and Pencil set, boxed. (Medium)

Date: c1950s

Size: Length - 109mm capped; 136mm posted.

This lovely and unusual set is in excellent condition with just some plating wear on the pencil's barrel band being the only damage that I can see to either piece.  The barrels of both pieces are made from a glossy black resin.  They are shiny and free from blemishes.

Fountain Pen

The cap has a transparent plastic core with a gold plated "sleeve" over the top.  The plastic peeks out of the bottom of the sleeve, forming the cap lip, and at the top, making a very unusual clear top jewel.  The Platignum pocket clip is also gold plated.  The barrel has a nice clear and crisp imprint, and opposite is the narrow gold plated filling lever.  The nib is a screw-in Platignum gold plated steel unit in a medium point.

Pencil

The pencil also has gold plated trim, courtesy of a Platignum pocket clip, barrel band and cone.  Again, the imprint is deep and crisp.  The top button unscrews and beneath is the spare lead storage.  There are a couple of spare 1.1mm leads here.  This is a propel-repel pencil that works by twisting the cone.

Box

A marvellous 1950s style paperboard box.  It is in excellent condition with a grey almost floral pattern on the outside and all white inside. Tucked inside the lid is a leaflet about the "quick-change" nib units.  

I have fully serviced this set.  The nib is nice and smooth and writes really nicely with a medium width wet line.
