Went to the local pen club today and a guy who picks up all kinds of wacky things had this. I bought it off of him, but I've never seen one before. I'm only assuming it was probably some time in the Venus years? 

 

The yellow body is wood, like a pencil. The eraser is hard like an ink eraser. 

 

Not a fountain pen, but kind of funky. Thought y'all would appreciate it. 

 

Anyone have any more info?

Cool!  I have some late Esterbrook items that I should post - a set of Rogue markers, a Convert-a-line, and a felt tip marker.

I’m wondering if that is one of the tins which held an Esterbrook compass repurposed as a sewing kit? Got to see it, or it doesn’t exist! :)I know i’ve got an Esterbrook clip or two somewhere...
