The onyx base is 7 1/4 wide x 4” Deep x 3/4 high, and has an indenture in which to lay the pen in so it doesn’t roll off. The under base has the original price tag from the 1940s and it states: With two 121SKD White Dot Pens $45.00, which was a tremendous price for a desk set back then. It was made by the W.A.

In 1952 Sheaffer introduced the Snorkel pen line, which is recognized today as one of the most complex filling mechanisms ever made.
I have had this set sitting on my desk for over 40 years. I paired it with a fabulous vintage Black Elgin Alarm Desk Clock, Art Deco Styling, so I had the best of 2 worlds, my pens and a clock to tell me when to stop working…..of course I didn’t usually stop working.!
This set make a great addition for your office or as a great gift for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthdays or any gift giving occasion.
