vintage pen overview summary
 
SUMMARY
 
Up here is a vintage Eversharp DORIC fountain pen, which was manufactured in USA circa 1930s. In 1931 Wahl-Eversharp introduced the fabulous DORIC, which is regarded as the most authentic and recognizable ART DECO vision ever created for a writing instrument. The DORIC's 12-sided faceted design was patented (US Patent No. D81,742) and still turns heads more than 70 years since its introduction.

The Wahl-eversharp DORIC for your consideration here is a fine example. It is in SENIOR version of the series, pretty long & bold, of overall length 5-3/16 inches. Its 12-sided body tapers at both ends, finishing in flattened pyramidal crowns. The 'Double-tick' gold seal emblem represents Eversharp lifetime warranty to the pen. The pen bears an art-deco cap band & roller-pocket clip. The color of the pen is stunning, called 'KASHMIR' by Eversharp. The pen bears an Eversharp GOLD SEAL Manifold 14ct solid gold nib. The pen bears a lever-filling system; new ink sac is fitted and the filler is in working condition. Only there is a tight hairline crack on caplip, has been repaired and barely noticeable. This Eversharp doric fountain pen is very collectible; with numerous stunning features which is rare and highly sought after

STORY
 
fountain pen history

Wahl Around 1914, Charles R. Keeran invented the basic mechanism for the Eversharp mechanical pencil, thought up the "Eversharp" trademark, and set up a company to make and sell Eversharp pencils. He relocated to Evansville. He soon entered into a business alliance with the Wahl Adding Machine Company in Chicago. Wahl officers obtained a majority share in the Eversharp Pencil Company. In 1940, the Wahl company reorganized under the Eversharp name, which was better know in the marketplace because of the continued success of the Eversharp pencil line. The Eversharp repeater pencil, introduced in 1936, was really driving sales and profits for the company, which had fallen far behind Sheaffer and Parker in total sales revenue. The company was sold to Parker in 1957
