Type  Vintage drawing pencil, working well.

Product Name  Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  Unknown maker, no marks. The address given on one facet for the US branch of S. S. Steiner was 50 Union Square, and we see they used that address in 1919-1920 so we are dating this pencil to the 1920s.

Length  5-5/16"

Filling System  Takes very thick drawing leads, which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism. The mechanism works well to extend the leads, but retracting them requires you to push on the lead. We're not sure about the exact lead size, but we were able to get drafting pencil leads to work, and will include some extra leads. 

Color  Silver or rhodium plated (the metal is not marked) in an 8 sided faceted design with a sort of barleycorn design on every other face.


Condition  Very nice condition. No cracks or chips, dings or dents. There's some light wear on the finish which mostly just looks like patina, and the blue color in the German imprint is a bit worn. It's working very well.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.)

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
