Pencil: Wahl-Eversharp Doric
Pencil: 5003 Wahl-Eversharp Doric
One of the most iconic art deco writing instruments of the 1930s is the Wahl-Eversharp Doric. Sadly, the gorgeous celluloid used by Eversharp has an unfortunate tendency to kraze (crackle into hundreds of little pieces). Luckily, this Eversharp Doric is in incredibly good condition. NO KRAZING! Its "Kashmir" green marble design is stunning. Its gold-plated trim is about 95% perfect, only hints of brassing on corners and edges. The double-checked gold seal under the clip means this vintage pencil came with a lifetime warranty for the life of its original owner. At writing distance, you can't see any wear, but a close inspection shows little marks and micro blemishes. Twist the tail cap to extend and retract the 1.1mm lead. Under the tail cap is a hardened eraser and spare leads. 13.1cm.
