William Manton are one of the top Birmingham Gold and Silversmiths and have produced a wide range of items in Sterling Silver and Solid Gold over the last 100 years. This is one their lovely solid gold Pencils.
It is fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1997 with the makers mark WM and the .375 for 9ct Gold.
The pencil is in full working order. There are one or two minor marks on the body but generally it is in very good condition.
These pens do not often appear on the market, it is to be considered as an investment rather than as a writing instrument although of course it is still in full working order. Without the body marks this pen would be twice the price.
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
