A rather unusual fountain pen and pencil set from Scripto in its original box. As is common with such sets, one piece often gets used much more than the other. In this case, the pencil does show some surface wear which suggests that it has seen some use, whereas the fountain pen looks totally unused and in near perfect condition still. Both pieces have slanted cap tops, chrome plated pocket clips and cap bands. The original box is also in excellent condition. Inside, there is a space for a ballpoint, too, but this sadly is not with the set any longer. The fountain pen has a friction-fit cap, which, unusually, has an o-ring as a cap clutch - very simple but no less effective than other, more contrived, methods. This is a lever filled pen and it has a chrome plated lever on the side of the barrel. The gold plated nib looks like it is in a medium point, and the feed is unusual, in that the forward part is transparent. The pencil extends and retracts at a twist of the point. The cap will also unscrew to reveal an apparently unused, but time-hardened, pink eraser.
I have fully serviced both pen and pencil.
A very attractive and quite unusual Scripto set.
