Pen-Dora's Bag- Ritesharp Fountain Pens



Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

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 :-

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.
