Pens and Ephemera
Pre-Owned Pens: 1563 Retro 51 Retro 1951
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Here's a Retro 1951 fountain pen that appears to be new old stock. The medium steel nib might have been dipped, but the original ink cartridges are still in their tube and the converter seems to be free of any ink staining. There are almost no traces of wear on the pen that comes in its original box. We think the clip and trim might have silver plating, as they had tarnished a bit before we polished them. This tortoise shell design is lovely. The pen comes with its original box...and seemingly no papers. Much larger than the more recent Retro 51 Tornado pens. 14.1cm capped.
