This is in continuation of my effort to record some old forgotten/missing brands of pens from India.

 

Today, we will see another vintage Indian Brand RITESHARP. I do not have much information about this brand either, but have heard a lot about this brand. Its a rare find, again from the bag!

 

My earlier posts are in this link..

 

Ricoh

Sabena-75

Swan VIP

 

This is a medium size pen and came in many colour barrels. The barrels were plastic and had a metal cap. The Cap had chasing design done on it and the clip is gold plated.

 

The date stamp in barrel points out that this pen is of June 1961.

 

Please find the pictures :-

The Imprint in the barrel. Note the date stamp 661 & the Emblem- R over a Lotus (Lotus is the national flower of India)

The chasing on the cap.

The Nib imprint Kingson (Kingson is another famous Indian vintage brand)

The Clip design- Does it look like black-bird

Hope you enjoyed one more Vintage Indian Brand. Any more information about this brand is welcome.

Good find.
I have got a Ritesharp nib in one of my pens. Written Ritesharp Made in Japan. Nib is quite flexible. I think Ritesharp may have depended on some Japanese company for nibs.

That's a really pretty cap. That pattern would look great on a Parker 51!


Too many pens, too little time!
