Spors Catalog Desk Sets In 1935

I know that this is a very specific topic with no actual pens to show, but a pen friend of mine asked if I had any pre 1940s Spors Catalogs that might have Desk Sets in them. As I was photographing my 1935 catalog and its Desk Set references for him, I remembered how many comments and questions I get on various Spors pens.

So, in answer to John’s question and to share some of these pages – here are the various Desk Sets that were marketed by Spors in 1935…

This Boxer Set is very interesting to me and I must admit that I have never seen one.  One of the pens is, of course, one of the trademark glass-nibbed Spors imports.

A master marketer, Frank Spors sold not only products, but marketing ideas to his catalog subscribers~

These are all of the sets in the 1935 catalog.  I will do a search of an earlier 1933 catalog as I locate it.
