This lovely desk set includes a perpetual calendar, letter opening, and pen in holder. The bases and handle are what I believe is onyx. It is white with streaks of grey and tan. The pen has advertising on it reading: John Bean Fire Apparatus. The ball point pen is dried up and no longer writes. The base of the pen holder is 3 1/4 in. long by 2 1/2 in. wide and 3/4 in. thick. The base of the calendar is 3 1/2 in. long, 2 in. wide, and 3/4 in. high. The height with the brass calendar frame on the base is 3 3/8 in.

The set is in nice vintage condition but not perfect. There are scattered tiny nicks mostly along the edges on the onyx bases and at least half of the corners have a small chip. I didn't find anything major. The handle of the letter opener probably has the most wear from handling and has some nicks along the edges that have discolored slightly. The metal blade has a worn finish. The calendar has an Art Deco design. The calendar pieces are discolored from age. All the months are there but it must be missing some of the numbered calendars as there are only 6 and they all have 31 days. There is a mylar covering over the front and a brass piece on the back.

I do combine shipping if more than one item is purchased. I don't have a set rate and figure the cost by actual weight of package to your location plus a small handling charge.

New York residents must add 8% tax.
