CAM-001 $10

Camel Pen - ca. 1934, 5 x 14 inches in black and white. This ad is not dated, but Camel had a rather short lifespan in the 1930s due to the Depression. The article next to the ad though discusses Japanese exports and notes some figures in 1933 and then mentions "Today", so I'm guessing this was no earlier than 1934. Camels are odd and rare and just really neat pens, one that you rarely see an advert for.

CRO-02 $9

This one features the Cross Six-Hundred noted as a smaller pencil along with the traditional Cross Century.

DIX-006 $5


Dixon Ticonderoga Pencils, set of 3 different advertisements, each measures 3 x 11 inches. Black and white. The hand written advertising is rather clever and invites you to write for a full sized Dixon Ticonderoga Pencil Sample. Not dated, but judging from a portrait of a man in suit on reverse side of one advert, I'd guess them to be from the early 1930s.

EAG-001 $7
