Experience the alternative universe of the Parker Pen Company with this English Parker Maxima. A substantial full-size pen, it combines elements of the American-made Parker VS, Vacumatic and 51. This vintage pen has some brassing on the cap band and wear on the cap and barrel. The imprint is worn off, but there are NO cracks. The aerometric filler is still in good working order. Click the headline font to see close ups of the pen and nib. The nib is an original 14k gold. It has a bit of a crimp that was straightened. It writes a surprisingly nice line. 14.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1485 Parker Maxima (English)
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1485: Parker: Maxima (English)
English Parkers of the late 1940s and early 1950s really seemed to take the best of American Parkers and incorporate it into its designs. This Parker Maxima is a full size pen with a nice wide grip, which makes for easier writing with less cramping. It has an American Parker Vacumatic shape, but with more modern plastics and an aerometric filler such as a Parker 51. This vintage pen is in great condition with only light surface wear and a handsome green color that is a little lighter than a traditional British racing green. The original 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line. It is a little inconsistent switching between fine and medium. 14.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1481 Parker Duofold (English)
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1481: Parker: Duofold (English)
Parker began producing a 3rd generation of its famous Duofolds in England after the war. This particular model is a rarer grey color. The design closely resembles a Parker Vacumatic, and its filling system uses the American Victory series button fillers. There are elements of discoloration and some wear from use. No cracks or brassing. A great grey cap jewel. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib writes a nice medium line with a very slight hint of feedback. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1275 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 1275: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Eversharp Skylines are just striking pens. This vintage pen has the navy blue barrel and cap dome, while the remainder of the cap is red and grey. We polished it up so that the heavy wear is harder to see at arm's length. There's also up to 30% brassing on the wide cap band. The lever and pocket clip also show their base metal. Severe discoloration on the section / grip. Nevertheless, we've restored it with a fresh ink sac. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write an extra-fine line nicely. There is a little play in the section, but it is in tightly. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1483 Parker Maxima (English)
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 1483: Parker: Maxima (English)
Imprinted on the barrel is "Parker Maxima / Made in England." Yet, imprinted on the 14k gold nib is "Parker U.S.A." Either way, the nib writes a lovely fine line. The pen has some wear on the barrel and cap but nothing especially onerous--mostly rings where the cap was posted and screwed onto the barrel. The aerometric squeeze filler seems to be working well with its original silicon ink sac. (These things seem to last indefinitely.) It is a big pen that is about as wide as a Mont Blanc 146 but nowhere near as wide as a 149. 14.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1482 Parker Victory (English Version)
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1482: Parker: Victory (English Version)
We haven't focused much on English-made vintage pens by Parker, but this is the first of a nice handful we picked up. With the exception of little rings left where the cap threads onto the barrel, there are no marks of any kind on the stunning blue cap and barrel. It fills with a still-working aerometric filler. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. The pen is a little slimmer than the English Duofold of the same era. 13.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1478 Waterman 100 Year Pencil
Filling Mechanism: .9mm
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1478: Waterman: 100 Year Pencil
Sheer perfection is the only way to describe this translucent red Waterman 100 Year pencil! You can still see through it to the eraser and mechanical parts. NO CRACKS. No brassing. Minimal surface wear. The middle band is engraved "P.E. Giannini." The lead moves up and down with a smooth twist of the tail cap. The eraser is 90% in tact but hardened. Spare leads still rattle around in side this beautiful vintage pencil. Has both the ribbing and the skinny-thick-skinny middle bands. 13.5cm.


Vintage Pens: 1470 Esterbrook Esterbrook J-9556
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1470: Esterbrook: Esterbrook J-9556
Esterbrook fountain pens taught a generation of Americans how to write with an ink pen. Required by many schools in the 1950s, these vintage pens are ideal first pens. The vibrant colors, the simple-to-use lever fillers and the custom nibs that unscrew and are interchangeable to alter the effects of your writing. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The steel 9556 nib was originally advertised as a firm fine writing nib. This one is a very smooth medium. It clearly was a user back in the day, but there are no cracks in the beautiful blue cap and barrel. The only major flaws are that the cap jewel is missing a chunk, which you can see in the photo. It also has a clip that spins a little and doesn't lay flush to the side of the cap. These J models were the widest bodied pens, which makes them easier to grip than other models. Much less hand cramping. 12.7cm capped.
