Vintage Tiffany & Co Sterling Silver Ballpoint Pen
We were assisting a client in sorting through some old jewelry and came across this pen wrapped in newspaper. The paper was dated 1971 so that helped us ballpark the age of the pen. We're guess around 1971.
Tiffany is well known for its lavish accouterments and this is no exception. How can you be properly attired without a proper writing instrument at the ready. And when needed, you'd be better served not having one labeled "Bic" or "Compliments of Mac's Used Cars." Yeah, Tiffany sounds much better. The pen is hallmarked on the base of the cap "Tiffany & Co Sterling."
We've given it a good polish and will do a finish-polish before sending to its new owner. We've also replaced the original ink cartridge with a new Cross cartridge and will send an extra along for good measure. Priced at about one-half of retail on Tiffany's website for similar ballpoint.
