The Story 

Yard-O-Led have a long history dating back to 1934 producing silver jewellery and writing instruments in England, in particular their patented pencils which had the capacity to hold 12 3" leads - hence the name 'Yard O' Lead'. Yard O Led continue to produce sterling silver writing instruments by hand in Birmingham, UK

Yard-O-Led describe the Viceroy Pocket as 'The petite sizing and intricate hand-hammered Victorian patterning make the Viceroy Pocket ideal for slipping neatly into a pocket or for use during travel.' The cap can be posted to the barrel giving the writer a fuller sized pen at 127mm, and at 25gms of sterling silver a beautifully balanced pen with gravitas. 

This is a highly collectable pen, fully serviced, complete with box papers and standard international ink cartridge with 18k medium nib, fully serviced and ready to write. 

The Nitty-Gritty 
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings. 

There are some minor micro-scratches and marks at the top of the cap and a small blemish on the rear of the barrel. Overall a very nice shiny and clean example, fully serviced and ready to write. 

Ink Recommendations
Why not pair with a bottle of J Herbin ink? Blue Ocean or Rouge Hematite would make a wonderful compliment to this pen.
