Vintage Bossert & Erhard Barley & Pinstripe Gold Vermeil Sterling Ballpoint PenSeptember 20, 2022 by admin | Filed under vintage.
Bossert & Erhard is world renowned for it’s craftsmanship, using translucent enamel and sterling silver to create one of the most unique writing instruments available. Distributed on an exclusive basis to jewelers and manufacturers/dealers of high-end writing instruments, these exquisite pens could easily be called the Mercedes-Benz of writing instruments. In fact, they are manufactured in a plant not far from the famed carmaker’s facilities in Stuttgart. Founded in 1919 in Baden-Wurtenberg by savvy businessman Christian Bossert and clever technician August Erhard, the company initially produced a variety of executive personal accessories including desk pads, manicure sets and fountain pens with a draw and twist mechanism. Today, the company’s exquisite line of elegant and distinguished pens features the highest quality refill mechanisms with nibs that are made for the exclusive use of Bossert & Erhard. And like the famed Mercedes Benz, the quality of a Bossert & Erhard writing instrument is beyond compare. This ballpoint pen is a work of art that will be appreciated by true collectors. There are barley designed pens and pinstripe motifs but I have never seen one with alternating barley and pinstripe designs such as this one. The photos are representative of the condition of the pen and is in fantastic condition especially considering it is a vintage pen. A new blue refill was installed prior to listing. Being a vintage pen while the box shows signs of age the pen does not. A fabulous writing instrument at this price point.
