Vintage Sterling Silver Ball Point Pen, Towle

This sterling silver ball point pen is quite unique as the head of the pen is shaped like a ball. The reason for the ball on the top of this pen is to assist one is dialing the numbers on a rotary phone. I remember my Mom using something similar while dialing the phone.

On the top of the ball there is a flat wafer which has the Towle logo and the Towle stamp, plus the word Sterling. The body of the pen is grooved lengthwise with the exception of two (2) flat surfaces where you would hold the pen.

As would be expected, the ink has dried up but otherwise this unique Towle pen is in perfect condition. I would think any collector of pens would be delighted to add it to their pen collection. What adds to the pen's uniqueness is the fact that the pen is in its original box! The name on the box reads: Rutkay Jewelers – Makers of Fine Jewelry – Glen Cove, NY.

The overall length of the pen is 4 ¾ ". The condition of this Towle pen is very good, circa 1920 – 1930's.
