The fully gold filled Signet set of fountain pen and pencil was introduced with the launch of the Aerometric 51 in 1949. This set, made in the USA, dates to the 1950s and is complete with the original splendid presentation case. Cap and barrel are 1/10 14k gold filled, marked on the caps, in a pattern of groups of three parallel lines separated by a gap. The barrel has a cartouche for engraving a presentation; on this set the cartouche has not been engraved.
The pen has a fine nib and a “Press 4 times” aerometric filler.
CONDITION: excellent, some light marks on the gold fill but no brassing and no personalisation. The Pli-glass sac in the pen is clear and appears to have little use and the pencil eraser is also almost intact. The case is also in very good condition.
