Vintage Pens: 0754: Esterbrook: Icicles SJ-9556
Feast your eyes on the ultra rare red "icicles" Esterbrook fountain pen. This is an Esterbrook SJ model with the premium 9556 steel nib. In mint condition, there are no cracks or significant blemishes on the barrel or cap. The ink sac has been replaced, and this pen is fully restored. Write smooth fine lines with the steel nib, which features the pen's only blemish over the six. Esterbrook's ultimate vintage pen. Both jewels are perfectly intact. The imprint is a little weak but visible. Made in U.S.A. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0944 Esterbrook SJ-1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0944: Esterbrook: SJ-1550
There is something about the sapphire blue of vintage Esterbrook pens that is so appealing. This SJ model has heavy surface wear, and the blue still shines through. There are no cracks or deep scratches, just surface wear. The imprint is fading but legible. The clip is on tight, and the jewels are perfectly intact. We replaced the ink sac. The stainless steel 1550 can be seen when you click the headline font. It writes a good extra-fine line without much scratching compared to other steel nibs. The 1550 designation means it originally was intended for bookkeeping. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0118 Esterbrook Grey Cartridge
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $10.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0118: Esterbrook: Grey Cartridge
What is this Esterbrook model? We aren't afraid to say we have no idea. It is a cartridge filling pen from either the late 1950s or early '60s. It comes with two dried original cartridges. We have no idea if the pen will fit any modern cartridges. The pen is in pretty good shape and comes with a steel 2668 nib. It writes a slightly scratchy fine line. 13.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0119 Esterbrook Grey Pump
Filling Mechanism: Pump/TouchDown Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $10.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0119: Esterbrook: Grey Pump
We have absolutely no idea what this Esterbrook pen model is or how to restore it. We don't even know if it was made in the '50s or early 1960s. It seems to have a touchdown style filler like a Sheaffer, but we cannot open up this pen and do any restoration on it. This pen is a curio for which we hope to find a good home. It has a slightly bent 2556 steel nib that is interchangeable. 13.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0787 Esterbrook J-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0787: Esterbrook: J-2556
Stenographers and students loved the fresh colors and affordable dependability of Esterbrook fountain pen in the 1950s. This is their wider bodied J model, which is a little easier to grip if skinny pens hurt your hand when you write. The still-vibrant minty green finish on the pen masks some heavier pitting and scratches on the cap and barrel. The pen has been fully restored with a new bladder. There are no cracks, and the imprint is strong except for the middle of "Esterbrook." The steel 2556 nib was advertised as being a "firm fine." Our vintage nib writes nice medium line, even though there is a bit of a hitch or scratch as the pen writes...fairly common for a steel nib of the era. The pen also includes an Esterbrook CLICK pencil. We know little about pencils, but clicks were fairly rare in the '50s. This one has movement in the click, but it doesn't seem to advance any lead. Pen measures 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0785 Esterbrook SJ-2556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 0785: Esterbrook: SJ-2556
The ever stalwart Esterbrook fountain pen trained millions of Americans how to write with a true "ink pen." This Esterbrook SJ model is long and slender. It is a classic black pen, but it has some surface wear, including a deep obvious scratch running through the strong Esterbrook imprint. The rest of the pen is in great shape. No cracks, tight clip, both jewels intact. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The steel 2556 nib was considered an upgrade in the day and was designed for "firm fine writing." We note that it writes more of a medium line that is fairly smooth for a steel nib. 12.8cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0932 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $64.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0932: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1555 Gregg
Most Esterbrook purse pens are in rough shape these days. This lavender model is exquisite. There are no cracks, dents, chips or deep scratches. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The jewels are perfect, and the clip is on tight. This vintage pen's imprint is strong. It comes with a steel model 1555 GREGG nib. It was advertised as a shorthand nib, which makes sense, as these pens were extremely popular among stenographers. It writes a nice fine line for a steel nib. 11.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0796 Esterbrook Purse Pen 1551
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0796: Esterbrook: Purse Pen 1551
Think pink! Our pink Esterbrook Purse Pen is a very nice dark 1950s' pink, although the photo doesn't quite do it justice. No matter how we tweaked the photo it still looks more orange than it really is. We've restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It comes with a steel 1551 "student" nib, according to Esterbrook's own advertising back in the day. There are no cracks, deep scratches or significant blemishes to this pen. The imprint is a tad faded. 11.1cm capped.
