Vintage Pens: 1940: Esterbrook: J-2668
Esterbrook pens taught the Baby Boom generation how to write using an ink pen. Extremely popular for their bright colors and interchangeable nibs, they were required writing instruments by many high schools, shorthand schools and journalism schools. They remain the #1 selling pen on this website! We have fully restored this J-model pen with a new ink sac. The steel 2668 nib was originally advertised as being for "General Writing." We dipped it, and it seems to write a wet medium for us. J-models were the widest pens of the Esterbrook line at the time, which makes them much easier to hold for people with arthritis and troubles with hand cramps. Our grey-green beauty has some light wear, a weak imprint and no cracks. We think it started as a deeper green but faded over the years. The threads covered by the cap are much darker than the cap and barrel. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1937 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 1937: Waterman: 452
Vintage pen fanatics, try not to ruin your keyboard by drooling over it. Our Waterman 452 with Sterling Silver filigree is as close to minty fresh as a 90-year-old pen can get. NO chips, dents or cracks. Powerfully strong imprints on the silver and the tail 452. The side-tail imprint is a little faded in parts. Two silver bolts are where the clip would be, but there is no clip. There are some light scratches in the silver and around the BHR where the cap screws onto the barrel. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib writes a razor sharp extra fine to a nearly 2mm triple broad! BEFORE YOU GET TOO EXCITED about the nib, you will need to spend some serious time training the nib and adjusting to its characteristics. It is rather stiff for a flexi nib, but with lots of time, practice and effort you can both train it to write more the way you want it to, and you can learn what it won't let you train. Take it easy and go slowly with it. 13.7cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1935: Esterbrook: 116 Desk Set
Make your desk or the registration counter at your bed & breakfast, doctor's office, boutique and many other businesses look great with this vintage Esterbrook 116 desk pen set. It features a shiny blue (box says gray but looks blue to us) bulb-shaped ceramic base with a black felt bottom and a fully restored lever-filling desk pen. The base is in mint condition without any scratches or chips. The fountain pen is a rare robin's egg blue model. Click the headline to see a close up. These are rare because of all the cracking in the original plastics. This one is also cracked, but it seemed very stable as we restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its steel 2668 nib is an upgrade nib that was advertised back in the day as "general writing" nib. We've dipped it and it writes a very smooth medium line for us. Complete with original box, although the box is missing its top.
Vintage Pens: 1939 Waterman 100 Year Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 1939: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
Waterman's Hundred Pen was predicted to last 100 years! Sadly, most of these beautiful pens did not last long. The celluloid tops and bottoms began to kraze. Our pen is a junior size that is remarkably well preserved! We have not touched the red celluloid and doubt the last owner did. In the photo, you can see a tiny chip missing near the pocket clip bolt. If you turn the cap around, you can see only a hint where the rest of the cap meets the red that a bit of krazing might be starting...or might have started and arrested years ago. There are some scratches and a little wear but not bad. The lip of the cap looks as if it has a crack, but we don't feel it when running the lip over a thumbnail. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its original 14k gold nib writes a firm fine line. Technically, the nib has flex, but it doesn't write like it. It will take a lot of training to make it flexi. Click the headline for photos. 11.9cm capped.

Its steel 2968 nib is an upgrade nib that was advertised back in the day as "broad writing" nib. We've dipped it and it writes a very smooth fine line for us.

Vintage Pens: 1933: Wahl-Eversharp: Ringtop
We rarely see pens this teeny tiny! Yet, our Wahl Ringtop in green gold fill is the talk of the town. Ideal for hanging from a watch fob or necklace, this is an impressive little pen. It has a Greek key design that is nearly perfect, except for some stubborn schmutz between the lever filler and the nib. The original nib is a size ZERO! This 14k gold nib writes an impossibly smooth fine line. We restored it with a new ink sac. Ready once again for any flapper or watch fob wearin' cat. 8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1916: Sheaffer: Lifetime Ringtop
Stunning is the only way to describe this sample of "Marine Green" in this Sheaffer Lifetime Ringtop fountain pen. It looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. We restored it with a new ink sac. It looks as if you could go swimming in the depths of the layers of green celluloid as they reflect the light around you. No cracks. Minimal wear. An unusually short lever. The original 14k gold Lifetime nib writes a razor-sharp extra-fine line. No brassing, bold imprint. Click the headline to see more. 10.5cm capped.
