Size: Capped - 133mm; posted - 155mm.
A lovely shiny polished 22ct gold plated Prelude fountain pen and ballpoint. This set is in excellent condition with no damage noted to either piece. The Sheaffer Prelude pens are full sized with a good heft and very well balanced. The pierced pocket clips have the Sheaffer white dot at the top and the gold tassie with the white pearly cap "jewel". The cap girdles bear the "SHEAFFER" imprint. Both caps and barrels are decorated with groups of vertical incised lines.
The cap pulls off and seats again with a reassuring click. The gripping section is well designed and contoured for a good sure grip. The barrel unscrews to fill the pen. You can use either the original standard Sheaffer ink converter already fitted to the pen or standard Sheaffer ink cartridges (cartridges not included). The two-tone steel nib is in a fine point and totally undamaged.
This is a retractable ballpoint - you twist the cap to extend and retract the writing point. It is fitted with its original Sheaffer "K" refill that still works perfectly.
This is a superb lacquered wooden presentation box with a cream coloured leatherette lining. Below the pad are the original instruction/warranty sheets. The glossy black outer card case is also present and also in lovely condition.
I have fully serviced this set. The pen writes with a lovely wet and consistent fine width line. The ballpoint works perfectly.
Probably the most up-market of all the Prelude finishes. Just a super set.
