|Ford's Jr. pencils are unremarkable except for the materials that were used to make them. In this picture we have the same turquoise and bronze seen on Waterman patricians from the early 30s, the blue-black-white "clown" celluloid used on some 1932 Sheaffers, and the green and bronze poularized on Wahl-Eversharp Tempoint pencils from the late 20s and early 30s.|
The Ford's Deluxe must have been the regular line of these. If by "Deluxe" they meant "celluloid shinks a lot more an the mechanism doesn't work as well," then the name suits them.
These are identical to pencils marked New Yorker.
