Here is a rare pencil sharpener from Holt Howard in the shape of a whale. I have not come across this item before, nor is it featured in Walter Dworkin's Guide to Holt Howard Collectibles. The whale is in excellent vintage condition. The bottom is stamped in black: Holt-Howard C 1960. The rubber stopper has some discoloration but is intact. The sharpener blades will sharpen a regular pencil or much larger pencils (like we used to use in kindergarten). The whale measures about 5" long, 3.13" wide and 3.5" tall.
A great piece to add to your Holt Howard collection.
