Vintage Pens: 1859: Esterbrook: 116 Desk Pen
Brighten your desk or business' check-in station with this robin's egg blue Esterbrook 116 desk pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this is actually an earlier 1930s or 1940s desk pen paired with the ceramic 1950s pen holder. There are a couple little imperfections in the pen holder and a couple bite marks in the tail of the pen. Otherwise, there are no cracks or problems. We replaced the black felt on the bottom of the desk pen. Click the headline for a good close-up of the steel upgraded 2668 nib. It writes a very smooth medium line.

Vintage Pens: 1858: Esterbrook: Esterbrook LJ 9314-B Relief
More than the pen that taught America how to write cursive and shorthand, this Esterbrook LJ must have belonged to some kind of handwriting specialist. Why? It sports a really cool broad, oblique stub nib known by Esterbrook as the 9314-B Relief. Click the headline for a good close-up of it. It writes smoothly with a lot of character, but, if you aren't used to oblique nibs, it might take a little getting used to. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. There are no cracks or significant damage beyond light wear. Clip tight, black jewels complete, imprint clear. 12.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1857: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens taught the Babyboomers how to write with an "ink pen," and these vintage pens are still beloved today. Unless they made a brown model, this is the darkest copper Esterbrook LJ we have ever seen. More subtle than the copper, it is also a richer hue. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. Strong imprint, no cracks! There are some marks of wear and use, but nothing too deep or egregious. Clip tight, double jewels are whole. The steel 2668 nib was considered an upgraded "general writing" nib. We find that it writes a nice wet medium...possibly broad...line with a hint of feedback, which is common in these older steel nibs. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1856: Esterbrook: SJ-2668
What pen taught an entire generation of Americans to write with an "ink pen"? Esterbrook! These humble vintage pens were among the most popular of the 1950s. Fairly inexpensive and very customizeable, most schools and training programs for secretaries, stenographers and journalists insisted their students use an Esterbrook fountain pen. This saphire-blue Esterbrook is an SJ model. That means it has a slender diameter but a longer cap and barrel than the flagship J model. Someone loved this pen. We know because it is covered in light little love bites on the cap and barrel. No cracks. We've restored it with a new ink sac. The steel 2668 "general writing" nib writes a wet medium-broad line with a hint of feedback at certain angles. 12.7cm capped.

Freshen your vintage pen collection with this minty green Esterbrook Purse Pen. There are NO CRACKS in the cap or barrel. The pen, particularly on the barrel, shows a little discoloration, but it isn't bad. Unfortunately, the section is pretty chewed up. Click the headline to see close-ups. There is some light wear on the plastic. The imprint is strong, and the clip is on tight. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The steel 9668 nib was considered a big upgrade in the 1950s. It writes a very nice smooth medium line. Both black jewels are in great shape. 11cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1596: Esterbrook: Dollar Pen
Before the beloved Esterbrook J-series pens of the 1950s came the Esterbrook Dollar Pen. Bright plastics define these vintage pens, along with flat tops and bottoms and the decorative slots in the clip. We fully restored this pen with a new ink sac. We also gave it a new steel 2668 nib. It writes a smooth medium line that was originally advertised as a "general writing" nib. No cracks defile this pen. Unfortunately, the section has a lot of scratching and scarring. The cap and barrel also have lots of little blemishes. Fortunately, the dynamic hard-candy red of the design distracts from the wear. A great daily user for a harder-to-find Esterbrook. 12.1cm capped.

Two pens are better than one. Our new-old-stock Esterbrook 322 base and pens are ready to serve at your leisure. We restored them with fresh ink sacs. The ceramic base is in great shape, but it has a little chip on its left side. It still has its original black felt bottom, but the printing has long faded away. Each pen has an upgraded 2556 steel nib. They are reasonably smooth extra-fine nibs.

Brighten any office or business reception desk with this teal Esterbrook 116 desk pen set. It comes complete with a new-old-stock Esterbrook fountain pen. We replaced the ink sac and gave it a killer smooth, stub upgraded steel 9284 nib. It writes with great character drifting from about 1mm to a fine line. The rarer teal ceramic base has no chips, but it does have a slight trace of wear. The black felt bottom is complete, with some of the original white writing on it.
