Faber Bakelite Pencil Sharpener D.R.P.


Nice larger desk mounted type Bakelite pencil sharpener made by A.W. Faber marked D.R.P. angemeldet. This is a pre-war sharpener, this type was made after the war as well virtually unchanged but this one is nicely marked indicating it is earlier. It is in good condition. Seems to be working except for the spring mechanism that draws the pencil into the sharpener. The whole metal collar pulls out away from the housing, you insert the pencil and lock it in, and then when you let go the metal collar is supposed to pull the pencil back into the cutter as you turn it. This one appears to be missing one spring and the other is not engaging properly. There is a small chip of the Bakelite nearby but it doesn't look like it is causing any of the problems. I believe it could be fixed with a little tinkering.
