Vintage Pens: 2245 Parker Vacumatic Major
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 2245: Parker: Vacumatic Major
Parker spent millions of dollars (in today's money) on research and design for the incredible Parker Vacumatic. Using a rubber diaphragm to fill a hollow barrel with ink meant that any Vac held more ink than any sac filler. It fills by pumping a plastic rod hidden by a blind cap in the tail. Our Parker Vacumatic Major was made in 1943. It was clearly a trusty pen, as it shows moderate to heavy wear. We restored it with a new diaphragm, and it is ready for more years of service. Click the headline to see the cigarette burn near the barrel imprint. Also, the nib and feed look smaller than what normally goes in this pen. Still, the 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line with a hint of feedback. The top black jewel is chewed, but the clip is on tight. No cracks. The speedline filler started to make the barrel feel a little "pregnant" so we stopped overtightening, which leaves a thin gap between the blind cap and barrel. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2244 Parker Streamlined Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 2244: Parker: Streamlined Duofold
Click it! Click it! Click the headline to look first and foremost at the RARE two-tone 14k Parker Duofold nib! Bigger than a traditional Duofold Jr. and shorter than a traditional Duofold Senior, we aren't sure what its official classification is. Still, it is a fully restored vintage pen that looks great. The deep cranberry and black marbling looks like a freshly licked lollipop. It shines through its light wear. The clip has a little brassing. The most egregious flaw is a bit of an impression where the cap snugged up to the barrel while properly screwed on. The nib writes a very firm but smooth fine line. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2243 Sheaffer 33 Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2243: Sheaffer: 33 Craftsman
Hailing from our neighbors to the north is this Canadian made Sheaffer 33 Craftsman fountain pen. The cap and barrel are made of the highly desirable and lustrous "carmine" red striped design. The only real flaws are a couple short but deep scratches near the tip of the cap. In addition to that, we restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The only real problem is that a past repairman really did a number on the section. It is pretty scratched up and scarred. Click the headline to see. The 14k gold nib still writes a nice fine line. 12.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2242 Moore 96-B
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 2242: Moore: 96-B
Following the nib trends of the day, our Moore 96-B is a thick, squat pen that is a definite conversation starter. We restored this uniquely designed pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot we could do with the moderate to heavy wear on the barrel and cap. No cracks, but the cap has some dents. The imprint is strong, but the barrel is pretty scratched up. The 14k gold nib is intentionally upturned like a Sheaffer, and it writes a beautifully smooth fine line. 12.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2241 Mabie Todd (Swan) Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 2241: Mabie Todd (Swan): Fountain Pen
Green stripes and marbling make for a really handsome Swan Mabie Todd & Co. fountain pen. Even with a lot of wear and a little discoloration, this pen looks great to us. No cracks, but it definitely has cosmetic issues. We restored the vintage pen with a new ink sac. Even the inkfeed is missing "combs" or "teeth," but the 14k gold original nib writes a really nice fine line! There is a swan imprinted into the flat top of the cap. Click the headline for close-up photos. 11.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2238 Scripto Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2238: Scripto: Fountain Pen
Imitation is the highest form of flattery. This fairly obvious recreation of a Parker 51 was made by Scripto, which was originally an Atlanta-based pen company. (Although it gave up on the pen industry, Scripto still exists as a lighter manufacturer.) We restored this lever-filler with a new ink sac. The hooded steel nib writes a nice fine-medium line. The cap shows more wear (some brassing spots in the plating) than the lightly worn barrel. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2237 Wearever Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $19.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2237: Wearever: Fountain Pen
Believe it or not, Wearever was the #1 selling pen company during America's golden age of vintage pens. You could find their pens in most dime stores. What they lacked in quality, they made up for in quantity. They also made up for it in really stunning colors and patterns. Click the headline for close-ups. This pen has two rich greens and glittering golden ribbons streaking through it. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. The pen was a user, and you can see several deep scratches and marks. No cracks. The stainless steel nib lost its gold plating, and it writes a remarkably nice medium line with a tiny bit of flex! 12.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2231 Esterbrook Transition 1550
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $59.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 2231: Esterbrook: Transition 1550
Japanese extra-fine nibs are almost impossible to find in American-made vintage pens...until now. This is that rare treasure that is actually pretty smooth to write with...especially for a steel nib! You can even tell that this is an early Esterbrook nib because of the more-rounded inkfeed. The fully restored Esterbrook Transition pen in ruby red is stunning, even without the nib. It has minimal wear on the cap and barrel, and in the right light it looks like a freshly licked red lollipop! No cracks, strong imprint, no actual slobber. Tight clip. 12.3cm capped.
