My Father gave me this set many years ago, to sell.  I was going through my bookcase today, and found the box.

 

I have tried to find out more about this set.  I assume they are out of business, but, I have no idea how to list it on ebay or etsy or here to pass it on to someone who would appreciate it.

It's a Morrison Black Hard Rubber with silver basket-weave overlay pen and pencil set in the original box. The pen is in need of restoration. There is lead in the pencil. A good picture of the top and bottom of the nib would help. Is the nib flexible?

 

I've got the smaller, ringtop version of this set and it's a great writer.

 

Morrison was an American pen company that made good, 2nd tier pens in the 20's but the product quality deteriorated in the 30's and 40's and I think the company went out of business in the 50's. The WWII Patriot models are collectable.

5 years of guarantee and the date hasn't been filled in, effectively then it is still under guarantee! lol
