Age/Period: Vintage - ca 1966 (1960s) to ca 1990s
Given that the company name contained on the interior portion of the case reads “Hero Pen Factory,” it can be determined that these pens do not pre-date the year 1966, because prior to 1966 the company was known as the “Huafu Pen Factory,” and based upon the look and styling of the pens (many if not most of Hero’s pens resemble Parker Pens) they likely don’t date later than the 1990s.
Manufacturer/Identification/Markings/Country of Origin:
*Each pen contains the Hero insignia on the pocket clips, and the fountain pen also has the same emblem on its nib.
*The chocolate brown velvet presentation case/storage/gift box is marked on the inside section of the underside of the lid: “HERO - Hero Pen Factory.”
*Both the fountain pen as well as the ballpoint pen are made entirely of elaborately decorative (optical illusion design) gold metal with silver metal accents.
*The handsome presentation case/storage/gift box is lined on its interior in a white satiny material, with the bottom portion being padded so as to cushion the pen. The underside of the lid has elegant gold lettering. The exterior portion of the case is richly covered in a chocolate brown velvety material over a hard, sturdy casing.
Size/Measurements: Each pen measures 5 & 1/4"L
Quantity: One (1) boxed set consisting of a matching pair of (two) pens (one fountain pen and one ballpoint pen)
Original Box/Packaging/Documentation/Inserts/Accessories/Contents: YES! Pen comes in its original gift presentation storage case.
*Both pens remain aesthetically pristine!
*Though the ballpoint pen has been “write” tested (it currently writes in blue ink), we don’t know how much ink remains inside. It’s twist-off (twist activated) cap mechanism functions properly.
*The fountain pen needs replacement ink and thus it currently does not write (couldn’t pull it out to photograph bladder - didn’t want to force it and risk breaking it). The nib appears to be in good condition, however the size of the nib is unknown (? medium vs. fine point).
*Box is also in exceptional, gift presentation-worthy condition.
