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 Grand line as 'The ultimate writing instrument for the dedicated pen connoisseur. The Viceroy Grand has perfect balance and its imposing dimensions give it a sense of authority.' 

The Viceroy Grand Victorian is a masterpiece in silverwork. Each is hand finished with up to 3000 individual hammer strikes, giving this beautiful ornate Victorian patterning a truly hand crafted feel of the highest quality. 

This is a highly collectable pen, fully serviced, complete with box papers and standard international ink converter with 18k Fine nib

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

There are some minor micro-scratches, marks and evidence of use on the cap and barrel and the clip is not quite flush to the cap, though not protruding overtly. Overall a very nice 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.
