Desk Sets - Pendemonium!

Some of the more unusual desk sets we come across weren't made by "The Big Four" (Parker, Sheaffer, Wahl-Everhsarp, Waterman) but by smaller, equally high quality writing instrument companies. Desk sets are always in demand, and we try to list them as soon as we find them, before we're tempted to keep them for ourselves!

Miniature Desk Set with adorable Figural Scotty Dog attached to a small vintage pencil.  Glossy black base and fixed pencil holder, figural Scotty Dog with metallic copper finish.  The small ring top mechanical pencil is dark blue celluloid, it uses 1.1mm diameter lead, twist to extend and retract lead.  Base measures 2.5 inches diameter, height to top of the dog is 3.25 inches. Silky dark copper cord attaches the pencil to the Scotty’s neck. The base with Scotty Dog is ca. 1920s, the pencil is ca. 1930s.  When we acquired this little set, it was truly a mess and in bad condition, we did quite a bit of work on it and re-painted the base and the dog.  It is now in very good condition and only needs a little tiny bit of space on your desk.
