This is a hard one to part with...

This baby has seen a lot of use. It was once painted a robin's egg blue (although the wall it was attached to was once painted white while the pencil sharpener was on it.). The metal on the sharpener has age discoloration and some rust, the paint is chippy, there is white splatter paint on the sharpener and the wall portion of the base (that was attached to the wall) was painted white.

This sharpener has been dented from pressure and it appears that it was forced together at one time or another. There are some sharp edges around the opening (see photos) where it looks like someone worked their magic to get it together due to the dent. Sadly, it also appears that whatever was done (sanding?) has created some polish and shine on the back. *sigh* Maybe someone should soak the base of it in water, to get it to rust up a bit. :)

Other than that faux paus, this piece is fab-u-lous! Worn, chippy, aged, rusty... it does take some work to get it together and pull it apart again to empty it, but it is worth it!!

I am SOOOO tempted to keep this. I have to admit that I have been holding on to it for awhile... :)

As far as identification, all I can make out from under the metal discoloration is CHICAGO USA. I was only able to read that using the zoom feature.

Sooooo fabulous. Buy it before I change my mind. :)

Please zoom in on all photos to see close-ups.

I will do my best to describe each item and take pictures that accurately represent it. If you have any questions, please email me. I check my shop at least twice per day.

If I have overestimated shipping charges by $1.00 or more, I will refund you the difference.
