Vintage Sheaffer Prelude (346), Fountain & Ballpoint Pen Set, Matte Black/gt
Sheaffer used his jewellery expertise to create a device which would allow users to fill a pen with ink much easier, cleaner and be more aesthetically-pleasing. In 1912 Sheaffer, dedicated his life savings to his idea of a pen-filling apparatus that initiates a lever system. By the 1930's, Sheaffer pens had solidified itself as a leader in the luxury pen market. The fountain pens were advertised as the pen that fills instantly from any ink-well, with one touch of a finger. Instantly, Sheaffer became a household name and must-have product. Sheaffer continued to design innovative and manufacture quality, robust and beautiful. Preludes first came onto the market in 1997 and have continued to be manufactured to the present day, however not all finishes have survived such as the bright silver PVD finish. Sheaffer advertise the prelude collection as a'classic design' with a'pleasurable writing experience. Prelude fountain pens were originally made up of five different finishes: Magnificent Gold, Luminous Lacquers, Luxurious Metals, Distinctive Mattes and Classic Chromes. All the finishes came fitted with a two tone electroplated nib. On offer is a Sheaffer Prelude FOUNTAIN and BALLPOINT pen set (model reference 346) in a matte black finish accentuated with 23k gold plated trim. This model of pen has a classic cigar shape that provides a substantive feel in hand and writes beautifully. The clip is also Gold plated and sports the iconic Sheaffer white dot.
The cap also has the prelude distinctive white Pearl insert on the the top part of the cap. The nib on the fountain pen is a two tone medium nib, with "Sheaffer" imprinted on it. The ballpoint pen has the same features as the fountain pen and is a new refill.
