About & Condition:

A New York City company that proliferated in manufacturing very high-quality pens in the 1920's - 1930's.  Producing and selling pens under their own flagship name and producing for Macy's Department stores, sadly, B&H was a casualty of the stock market crash and the depression. 


The pen is in excellent, near mint, overall good condition with very crisp chasing and black color. The pen has no cracks or personalizations.  The ring top has some very light surface wear and a small ding.  The pen has been fully disassembled, carefully cleaned, a new ink sac installed and ink tested.  This beautiful c. 1920's pen is ready to write.
