Size: Length - 108mm.
A very pretty little gold plated ballpoint and pencil set in excellent condition with no damage at all on it that I was able to spot. These hexagonal pens are decorated with machine engraved barleycorn pattern. Usually, the Scripto Lady pens are engraved with a series of vertical lines, so having a barleycorn set is quite unusual. There is a very clear imprint in the centre of the barrels.
Usually, the ballpoints are retractable, but this one has been designed with a little brass collar around the refill which holds it steady in the pen. The knurled crown can be unscrewed then in order to change the refill. I have fitted a brand new refill (the Schmidt 700 refills fit perfectly).
This is the first Lady pencil I have ever had. To find it in a boxed set with a ballpoint pen is just icing on the cake. This is a clutch-type pencil. You press on the little brass end button to open the clutch and allow the lead to move forward. I have installed a fresh 1.18mm lead and it is working perfectly.
The original box is also in excellent condition. It is finished with a textured silver foil covering.
A very attractive and quite unusual Scripto Lady set.
