Vintage Pens: 1953: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal Equipoise
Glittering gold swirls its way through the green celluloid of this classic vintage pen. Our Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal is an Equipoise...we think. A rival had a similar pen listed as such, but most other Equipoise pens don't have the black topper with a gold center or a black bottom cap. The rest is pretty spot on. The thicker middle cap band has a diamond cut pattern of diagonal lines. There are no cracks or brassing. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. The original 14k gold nib is marked "Gold Seal Manifold." It writes a buttery smooth fine line on a dip. Aside from some light wear, the only major flaw is some grey taking over the gold in the first half of the barrel of the pen. Click the headline for closeups. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1952: Wahl-Eversharp: Oversized Fountain Pen
Oversized. Buttery smooth nib. Flexible nib. Fully restored with a large ink sac. We suspect this Wahl pen is many vintage pen collector's perfect daydream. Yes, there is a small crack in the lip of the cap, which has more discoloration than the barrel. But, write with this huge, handsome devil, and you will forget about all of its imperfections. The original 14k gold nib is a huge size 6. It doesn't have a lot of flex, but it does have some. We mentioned it is a buttery smooth, wet medium writer, right? Wide girth, light weight means hours of writing without cramping. 13.9cm 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
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.

Vintage Pens: 1904: Waterman: 512
Click the headline photo and look very closely. Our Canadian Waterman 512 appears to be a very dark burgundy. Look at how the section is a true black. The pen looks black in most lights, but this close up shows a different story. We have fully restored this pen with a new ink sac. The lever box is in good condition, and there are no cracks anywhere on the pen. The imprint is strong. Unfortunately, you can also see a lot of wear on the pen. There is a ring where the cap had been repeatedly posted. A few little scratches and blemishes also mar the pen's handsome features. Luckily, its heart and soul are sound. The original 14k gold nib writes a firm but smooth fine line. Zero Flex. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1890: Waterman: Desk Pen
Everyone's got an empty base with no pen, but we've got the rare Waterman Desk Pen with no base! Restored with a new ink sac, this Waterman desk pen features a black hard rubber taper and exceptionally large section. The barrel is a black and pearl with some discoloration. Polish took out the worst of the chocolate hazing. There are remarkably few scratches or marks of wear. No cracks! The imprint is strong, and it lists the pen as made in Canada. The 14k gold nib is marked "Med. Rigid." It is definitely rigid, and more of a fine to fine-medium. Click the headline to see more. 20cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1889: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric Gold Seal
Typically a full-size (not oversized) Gold Seal Wahl-Eversharp Doric in burgundy sells for $300 or more. Our beautiful vintage pen has about half its cap lip missing. Please click the headline for better close ups. You will even see the rarer "Made in Canada" imprint in the "nib" photo. We have restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. Despite its damage it is still a fully functioning fountain pen. The real kicker is that the top and bottom of the pen have only just started showing signs of discoloration. The "krazing" has not really started yet. The original 14k gold MANIFOLD nib writes a medium line with a little drag. Apply any pressure and it really digs in. Engraved "John D Kirkwood." 13.2cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 1680: Delta: Colosseum
Gladiators never had it this good! Of course, most of them probably couldn't read or write. Nevertheless, you can enjoy the supreme pleasure of the Delta Colosseum limited edition fountain pen. Created in 1996, it is a classic oversized lever-filler. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. It is in near mint condition. Best of all, it writes with a buttery smooth, two-tone 18k gold nib. It lays down a confidently wet medium line. Did we mention is was incredibly smooth! Yeah, sure. It is museum quality pristine...but how can you resist writing with it? Complete with inner and outer boxes, it no longer has its original ink bottle. Light, wide and 14.7cm capped.
