Sheaffer White Marble & Brass Vintage Desk Set (with Two Swivel Pen Holders & Perpetual Date Calendar).
This gorgeous marble desk set features the hard to find double-pen model mounted into a white marble base stand and a perpetual date calendar. Distinctly mid-century it even still has the original Sheaffer sticker. Stylish yet retro, this piece of 1950s UK office equipment is imprinted with 'Made in England' on the back brass.
The brass date calendar is clean and in perfect working order. One could easily restore this rare piece back to its former glory (and high $ value) by simply adding two new pen holders and two pens. Marble base measures 7" by 3" and is ⅞" thick. Weighs nearly 2 full pounds. Pen holders are approximately 4 inches long when inserted into base. Pens not included.
Condition: Very good condition overall as the photos will attest to. Pen holders are original (and slightly corroded), although these pull out from the base and can easily be replaced. Felt on bottom is lightly worn. The marble is still in great shape with sharp edges and free of bruises or damage.
