In 1909 the tower of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Building in New York City was completed. Tiffany created a magic pencil representing the tower. The pictured example is shown here in the fully extended position. Calendar courtesy of my buddy Jon Veley. Enjoy!
Shown here are a couple store display writing instrument cases. Circa thereabouts 1925 - 1930. On the left is an Eberhard Faber and on the right is a Koh-I-Noor. For the curious, that is a boxed Parker bridge set sitting in the right case.
