Wahl Ringtop

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

This is a very nice little gold-filled ringtop, a Wahl All-Metal pen from the mid-1920s. It has seen use, of course, and has a layer of micro-scratching but no significant dents or deep scratches, and particularly shows no evidence of posting. The Checkerboard overlay pattern is complete and without missing plate, and the Wahl imprint is complete and easily read. The pen is professionally personalized for someone with the initials HLR.  Like almost all of the small ringtops, it’s 3 1/2″ long capped and 3/8″ thick across the barrel. The nib is the correct and probably original Wahl 2. This is a pen for a right-handed writer, for whom it will write a very nice and wet extra fine flexing to a broad, with some auditory feedback.
