Wahl Eversharp

Another piece in my pen and pencil collection is a Wahl Eversharp Chatelaine style mechanical pencil.  This style, embellished with chevrons and crowned with a floral relief, and based on the markings was probably manufactured in Chicago during the late 1920s or early 1930s.

This is another piece that is not valuable, but which I like very much as it feels comfortable in the hand, and is both practical and decorative (which warms my Celtic heart).  I enjoy the pencils more than the pens, which is perhaps unusual since I much prefer writing with a pen.
