Hi, Folks! 

 

I'm going to start a thread on Wahl Eversharp Machine Turned Patterns and see what I can contribute so we can get a reference going.  I'll add pens and pencils over time and encourage others to do the same.  Thanks!

 
This is a Wahl model 433A Colonial pattern 12 Karat Yellow Gold Filled fountain pen c1921-1924. It is the shortest, at 4 5/16 inches, of the three sizes of clip metal pens with the engine turned Colonial design, a straight line pattern on the cap and barrel. The barrel has a rectangular blank for engraving. It features a Number 3 14 karat gold nib stamped Wahl Tempoint Pen, possibly indicating that this is an early production pen. Wahl marketed pens under the Tempoint name at least as late as 1920 before branding their fountain pens as Wahl in 1921. The clip and cap top band are stamped with the Wahl name. Model 433 also came as a ringtop pen and a choice of 12 karat yellow gold fill or sterling silver for $7.00 or 14 karat green gold fill for $8.00. Matching Eversharp pencils were available for $5.00 and $6.00, respectively.

I have a couple of ringtops with the Check pattern. I'll have to look at them tonight, but I think they're sterling. Waterman made pens with a very similar pattern, much like everyone had a pen in the Gothic style.

I just looked at your article on the patters and it is a superb reference. I will spend many happy hours reading and rereading the information.

Thanks!  I'm up for any corrections / improvements since I don't have 100% of the reference material from 1921-1929.

Hi, Folks! 

 
This is a Wahl Console Design 12 karat yellow gold filled fountain pen c1928.  This is the most commonly found clip pen size of a rather uncommonly found Wahl metal pen.  Other larger size pens are known but rare.  An unusual feature of Console Design pens is the red mottled hard rubber section.  The pen features engine turned sets of repeating panels of bell and flower shapes around the cap and barrel. Introduced and probably only produced in 1928. The barrel has a rectangular blank for engraving in one of the panels. It features a Number 2 14 karat gold nib stamped Wahl. It sold for $7.00 in 1928 and the matching Eversharp pencil was $3.50.  Ringtop pens and pencils were also made.

Console is my favorite.  Early on in collecting I spent a ridiculous amount on one.

Hi, Folks!

 
This is a Wahl Ring Colonial Design 12 karat yellow gold filled fountain pen c. 1929.  The Ring Colonial Design is a modification of the Colonial design with a pair of black enameled wide rings cut in repeating up the cap and barrel with the three cuts between filled with black enamel.  This 4 15/16 inch long pen is the medium size model with a 14 karat gold Number 4 size nib.  This nib is stamped WAHL EVERSHARP 14K GOLD SEAL FLEXIBLE.  Larger size pens are known but rare.  Introduced and probably only produced in 1928 and 1929. Earlier, 1928 pens would have the top cap band engraved WAHL PEN, as shown in the 1928 catalog.  This pen is engraved WAHL - EVERSHARP over GOLD FILLED MADE IN CHICAGO, U.S.A., indicating a later pen, likely 1929.  The barrel has a small rectangular blank for engraving between the second from the bottom sets of rings.  The medium size pen was model X7164 and sold for $8.00 in 1928 and the matching Eversharp pencil was $5.00.  Ringtop pens and pencils were also made.

Hi, Folks! 

 
This is a Wahl Lakeside Design 12 karat yellow gold filled fountain pen c. 1929.  The Lakeside Design is a champlevé technique design where the cap and barrel are engraved with repeating panels of a wave pattern that is overlaid with tinted blue enamel.  This example has most of the enamel worn off, except directly under the clip.  This 4 15/16 inch long pen is the medium size model with a 14 karat gold Number 4 size nib. This nib is stamped WAHL SIGNATURE PEN 14K.  Introduced and probably only produced in 1928 and 1929.  Earlier, 1928 pens would have the top cap band engraved WAHL PEN. This pen is engraved WAHL - EVERSHARP over GOLD FILLED MADE IN CHICAGO, U.S.A., indicating a later pen, likely 1929. There is no engraving blank on the pen, but there is space at the top of the barrel.  The medium size pen sold for $10.00 in 1928 and the matching Eversharp pencil was $5.00.
