The Wahl Eversharp Doric remains one of the most iconic and sought after pens of the twentieth century. It was introduced in 1931 and its Art Deco styling immediately caught the publics attention. Technically, the pen was brim full of innovation and introduced radical new features to the American market like the ink shut off device, the visible ink window, the split feed and the piston filling mechanism.
Many pens have followed the standards set by this tremendous pen and you can still find modern pens based on the very same design.
This particular pen is in fabulous condition. it is made from black celluloid with a slightly ambered ink window. This is the Gold Seal model with an adjustable nib, the nib has a slider which moves up and down to adjust the flexibility of the nib, it works really well!! The nib is a fine and ranges between stiff and full flex.
The pen has been fully serviced and is ready to write.
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.
