SOLD, Thank you Jeffery!
And thanks for starting up an interesting thread about the 'roots' and backgrounds of this pen! Look

For sale
: vintage pearl gray and black marbled pen. On the barrel is the name: PERLES
If this is a brand name, it is totally unnown to me. But is is an elegant, well made pen, probably manufactured in Germany in the late 1930's or even early 1950's.

Material: Cap & barrel: pearl gray & black marbled/ chipped celluloid.

Clip & rings: gold plated brass.

Filling System: Button filler

Nib: 14K DEGUSSA nib, with lots of flex.

Length Closed: 130 mm
Posted: 160 mm
w/o cap: 120 mm
Width of the cap: 13,6 mm
of the barrel: 12,2 mm

Writing is smooth, but has a little bit of tooth. with a medium wet M line.
With some pressure one can achieve a nice variety in line width.

The pen has practically no user marks, just a little brassing at the clip & ring.
I completely serviced it, and the condition, technically and cosmetically is excellent.

Being a totally unknown brand I only ask US$ 60,- for this high quality well made pen.
The price includes World Wide shipping. (uninsured, standard airmail letter post).
Paypal only.
