Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Lifetime Desk Pen
Vintage Pens: 4546 Sheaffer Lifetime Desk Pen
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Give your desk a little glamor with a Sheaffer Lifetime Desk Pen. Its jade green barrel is stunning and glossy, with barely any darkening. The pen is restored with a good ink sac. Its tail taper is a glossy black with minimal wear, just a couple tiny marks near the tip. You'll find the pen has a good gripping width, about the same as a Pelikan 600. It has the flat ink feed with little square vents and a 14k gold Lifetime nib. You'll write a firm, smooth extra-fine to fine line with just a touch of feedback. Its desk base appears to be onyx. There are small chips on the bottom corners that are very easy to miss. The trumpet appears to be black hard rubber, making the base older than the pen. Yet, the pen fits nicely. You can still tilt and swivel the trumpet. Unfortunately, it is missing its bottom felt. Pen measures 20.7cm.
