Vintage Pens: 0572: Victorian: Sterling Silver Pen & Pencil
We didn't find any identification marks on this solid sterling silver dip pen and pencil combo from the Victorian era. It has a steel Esterbrook dip nib in it, but its original nib likely was 14k gold. Click the headline to see the pencil. The nib section pulls out of the tail piece to reveal the pencil, which still has a lead! Overall, this is in amazingly good condition with only a couple dents on the tail end of the pen. The space reserved for someone's initials is blank. It has some good heft and length. 14cm.
Vintage Pens: 1866 Sheaffer 3-25 Orange
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1866: Sheaffer: 3-25 Orange
We get Parker "Big Reds" by the gross, but this is our first orange Sheaffer from the 1920s! A Sheaffer 3-25, the model number designates that it was a $3 pen with a 25-year warrantee. It is a really handsome slender, junior-size vintage pen. We have fully restored it with a new ink sac. The imprint is legible but faded in parts. The black threads were a factory repair in the 1920s or '30s. The orange-colored material proved to be a little fragile, and they'd replace broken orange thread pieces with spliced in black ones. There are two teeny hairline cracks that are very short sprouting from the place where the orange and black meet. There are a couple of hairline cracks in the lip of the cap, too, but all the cracks seem stable, as long as you don't post the cap. There is heavy brassing in the back of the cap band and a little on the ball of the pocket clip. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line. 10.8cm capped.

The stainless steel nib writes a smooth fine line. 13.5cm capped.

Winning the award for most complicated way to fill a fountain pen is the snorkel system on this Sheaffer Statesman.

It sports an "X4" palladium Triumph nib that is conical. That X4 is as extra-fine as any Japanese nib.

SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1862: Sheaffer: 875 / Saratoga Set
Sheaffer branched out into many new colors, sizes and shapes for its various post-war pens. This late 1940s Sheaffer Saratoga is a slightly wider bodied pen compared to many of the Sheaffers to come in the 1950s. It is a fully restored lever-filler with a new ink sac. The inkviewing window is remarkably clear. It also comes in the slightly rarer Prussian blue, that did not carry over into the Snorkel pens that would soon replace it in the production line. The open, two-tone 14k gold nib writes a great extra-fine to fine line very smoothly. The matching pencil is in good working order. There is very little wear on either instrument. Pen measures 13.4cm capped.

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.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1980-present
Price: $59.99
SOLD!
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.
