Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Balance
Vintage Pens: 3196 Sheaffer Balance
Grey swirls and flakes with red veins was a very distinctly 1930s design. Our Sheaffer Balance is the standard size (neither oversized nor small/junior) exemplar of Depression-era art in industrial design. It'll turn heads. No cracks, a strong imprint and no real scratching. Its only flaw is some significant wear on the cap band. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. Its heart and soul is the size 5 "Feather Touch" two-tone 14k gold nib, which writes an exceptionally smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. A rarer color pattern for Sheaffer. 13.9cm capped.
