This is a Welsh Manufacturing Company fountain pen in a very unusual black and cream carved celluloid c. late 1930s. The Welsh Manufacturing Company of Providence, Rhode Island made pens and pencils from at least 1929 to 1952, based on patent filings. The company also made eyeglasses and goggles. The cap is solid black celluloid, but the barrel appears to be cream colored with a thin black color surface that was carved or cut into the surface in a design of converging and spreading rays. The visual effect is similar to Japanese kamakura-bori, a decorative technique done by carving patterns in wood or lacquer revealing layers of color and then polishing to finish. This 5 3/16 inch long pen features an arrow shaped gold plated clip, probably inspired by the Parker Vacumatic, a chased gold plated cap band, and a raised disc cap top and barrel end. The clip is similar to the much later design on the Parker 45. It has a 14 karat gold plated two tone stainless steel nib with no tipping, relying instead on a punched or pressed dimple in the end of the tines to act as the point. The nib design is similar to late 1930s Sheaffer Feathertouch nibs.
