A. T. Cross: Enameled Ringtops

Jim Rouse also had a group of nice hand-painted enameled ringtops, probably intended as ladies' pencils.  I knew that Sheaffer and Waterman offered similarly hand-painted ringtops, but these were the first that I'd seen by Cross.  The three on the right are all marked with the "Alwrite" trademark.  From what I recall, the one on the left is marked AXT . . .

NOTE:  This article is now included in the print version of The Leadhead's Pencil Blog, available anywhere you buy books, or also from The Legendary Lead Company.
