Vintage Pens: 2094: Waterman: 3V
Brown veins weave their way through layers of shimmering grey pearl slabs for this very attractive vintage pen. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. The pen is in great shape with only light wear and strong imprints, except for a window of pre-kraze forming to the left of the clip in the main photo. Click the headline for closeups. The nickle-plated clip also has some nicks on the left edge, if you look closely enough. The 14k gold size 2 nib writes an extra-fine line as thin as the hair of an angel. It also is a semi-flex that could use a little training to make it more malleable. 10.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2092 Sheaffer Cadet
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2092: Sheaffer: Cadet
Experience the awesome fun of a Sheaffer Touchdown pen without a brutal price tag. Sheaffer Cadet pens were and still are more affordable while also using a great pneumatic filler. We replaced its ink sac and O-ring for many years of great service. The pen has only light wear. There are no cracks. Its Sheaffer steel M1 nib is technically a medium, but it writes more like a firm fine. How does it work? Unscrew the blind tail cap, pull out the tail filler, stick the nib completely in ink and push down on the tail filler. Wait second or two, and you're ready to write. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2091 Waterman Taperite
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2091: Waterman: Taperite
Waterman Taperite fountain pens were popular during World War II. This one is distinctly of the war in its olive drab section and barrel, sporting a star under the clip. We replaced the ink sac with a new one. The pen is in good working order, but the cap and barrel have light scratches. The hooded section features the most wear with many scratches from the metal grip of the inner cap. The 14k gold nib writes a fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2090 Majestic Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2090: Majestic: Fountain Pen
It isn't often that you can find a gold-nibbed vintage pen for less than $40. Majestic pens were a third-tier pen maker back in the 1930s and '40s. This attractive brown-striped pen has a brand new ink sac and is ready to write. It also has a clear ink-viewing window. There are some scratches and wear on the pen. No cracks in the lip of the pen, but the very top has either two little cracks or deep scratches. Armed with a 14k gold nib, this pen writes a medium line with a little feedback. Technically, the nib has a little flex, but it isn't really a flex writer. Yet, if you want practice honing a nib to make it a flex, this might be a good nib to try your hand while not spending a fortune. 12.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2089 No Name Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $35.00
Vintage Pens: 2089: No Name Fountain Pen
Bright green, white and yellow stripes make this classic no name brand fountain pen look like something Dick Van Dyke might have written with in "Mary Poppins." It's a cheeky pen with a lot of life left in it. We replaced the ink sac. Its Iridium Tipped nib writes a very firm fine line. We suspect that this nib is a replacement from long ago. The cap and barrel have light wear but no cracks or serious blemishes. The clip seems to be on strong and tight. You can see the lever ring through the plastic, but every thing seems to be working well. It is a nice fat pen, which makes it easier to grip for longer periods without cramping your hand. 11.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2088 Parker 51 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 2088: Parker: 51 Flighter
Let your writing take wing with our Parker 51 Flighter. This rare Parker 51 is the all metal version of the pen with an aerometric filler from the late 1940s. We completely restored this pen by giving it a sonic cleaning to clear the hood and feed of old ink while also installing a new silicon ink sac. The hood and nib are just a shade off from perfect alignment. The cap and barrel show the usual wear rings from where the cap fit on the section and where it was posted on the tail. There is a small dent on the end of the tail from where the pen must have been dropped once. However, there are no other dents or deep scratches, just the usual light wear. The original metal breather tube is still in the pen. The 14k gold nib writes very nice wet medium line. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2087 Marxton Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2087: Marxton: Fountain Pen
Marxton pens were a subbrand of the Eclipse Pen Company. (One clue is the wreath on the lever filler.) Made in the late 1920s or early 1930s, this is a classic oversized vintage pen. Beautiful shades of green and yellow swirl through the early celluloid like the colors in a Monet or Van Gogh. The big fat cap band is marked 14k gold filled and has a couple obvious scratches but is in good overall condition. We restored this pen with a monster ink sac. The pen has some wear, including a deep scar to the left of the pocket clip, but it gets lost in casual observation to the vibrant colors of the pen. The Warranted 14k NY nib looks like a 1mm oblique stub, but it writes more like a normal medium nib. The nib does have a little flex. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2086 Parker Parkette Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2086: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
Parker's Parkette Deluxe dazzles in what Sheaffer would have called "Marine Green." Marbled layers of green still look sharp in spite of its light wear. Parker rarely used levers to fill its pens, but that is how most of its second tier pens of the Parkette line filled. We restored this one with a new ink sac and a custom made J-bar spring. The gold plating has mostly come off of the steel nib that writes a nice fine line with a hint of feedback. The brown celluloid of the section is almost to darkened to see ink levels in. There are no cracks, but the lip of the cap is a little warped out of place. 12.9cm capped.
