Wahl Midget Pencil
About This Model
From the early 1920s until well into the 1930s Wahl produced small metal ringtop pens, aimed largely at women, in both silver and gold-plated overlays. These were often highly ornate, with small (usually size 2) gold nibs that wrote flexible lines for calligraphic script. Generally speaking, these pens have held up well over time, are usually straightforward restorations. The pencils, which were usually expel only, work well and without the corrosion of ink, generally hold up well.
About This Pen
The Wahl Midget was available throughout most of the 1920s and well into the 1930s, with a propel-only mechanism that works fine, needs the old 1.18mm lead, looks fantastic. The gold filled metal is intact, in Colonial design, with a signature box already engraved with the Hanlin Chinese design. This pencil is just over 3″ long and 0.3″ wide, so is not for long writing…but perfect for the quick note and with intact ringtop for hanging from an ID band!
