Hi, Folks!

 
Desk sets don't get a lot of attention, but this particular set has a lot of wow factor!
 
EversharpSilverGreenShellDeskSet_1280_01
 
This is a late 1930s Eversharp lever-fill desk set where the pen, the long taper and the socket are all made from Eversharp's Emerald or Silver Green Shell celluloid.  Given the amazing patterns in the celluloid, the gold filled trim provides a subtle geometric accent to the faceted design.  The pen is twelve sided, 8 1/4 inches long, and the socket is sixteen sided, 2 7/8 inches long.  The base, intended to look like green jade, is 3 inches in diameter.  The 14 karat gold Eversharp banner nib, a firm medium, indicates a late 1930s pen or a replacement nib.
 
Thanks!

Wow even if I found that the stone base doesn't fit so well with the stunning beauty of this set, I remained almost 10 minutes in total admiration ! very very nice

Beautiful!
 
I love the green contrast against the gray pen!

Plan purposefully, prepare prayerfully, proceed positively, pursue persistently.

I found this at an auction house and Wahlnut put in a new sac and cleaned it up to look like new.  Doric desk copy.jpg
