This Eversharp pencil, in its original box, can be firmly dated to the 1930s. Up until 1921 the pencils were marked 'Eversharp', during the 1930s they were 'Wahl Eversharp', this pencil, then after 1940 they became 'Eversharp' again.
The pencil is silver plated, it has rubbed in small areas, but is still a bright and attractive vintage pencil, better 'in the flesh' than in the photos. It operates by turning the end finial to extend the lead and is manually retracted.
It is a full sized, working pencil at 13.3 cm. in length. The box is in good condition as is the instruction leaflet.
Mechanical pencils are once more becoming very popular again as convenient every day writers, this eighty odd year old vintage version is at least as good as any of the new ones and has a good deal more 'prestige'.
