Venus President Set, Mint in Box. Lever-filler fountain pen and mechanical pencil set, WW2-era production with solid 14K gold nib, gold filled over silver trim. Original bands on both, pencil uses 1.1mm lead, pen has not had its original sac replaced but is otherwise ready to use. Aside from the thin plating on the pencil's nose cone, no condition issues -- no cracks or other damage, photos should show you everything.
Venus isn't a brand that gets a lot of collector attention, aside from as the company that bought Esterbrook a couple of decades later, but this model was top-rated in a 1944 Consumer Report review of fountain pens. We strongly believe in full and explicit description of any condition problems or flaws, and in very conservative grading.
