GWR Oak ballpoint pen - Oak taken from GWR 169 a 1929 rail carriage.
GWR Oak ballpoint pen
High quality handmade wooden ballpoint twist pen handmade in Oak from a floor support removed during restoration of Auto-trailer GWR No 169. The oak is contrasted perfectly by the Black Titanium with Black chrome coloured fittings.
GWR 169 was one of twelve new Auto-Trailers ordered by Great Western Railway in 1928 (Lot 1394 to Diagram A27). 169 was delivered in 1929, it spent a lot of its working life around the Cardiff valleys.
This is a beautiful handmade high quality pen, the comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.
The pen accepts standard Parker type refills which are widely available. It includes a high quality refill with black ink. It will be shipped in the case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.
A matching Fountain pen can also be added to complement the Ball point pen.
The pens can be displayed in a custom presentation case if required. The case can be made to fit your selection of accessories and pens as required.
All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded, sealed, waxed and polished to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
