Vintage Pens: 3115: Eclipse: Fountain Pen
Oversized Eclipse pens from the 1920s are getting more difficult to find. However, we are happy to offer this handsome model in black. It does not appear to be hard rubber! We warmed it up and gave it a sniff. It definitely didn't have a smell. It is restored with a fresh ink sac. We think the most unique part about this vintage pen is that the brand Eclipse is written in a script font on the pocket clip! No cracks. No engravings. The pinstripes-and-squares pattern is a little worn in places. Scratching and brassing appear heavily on the cap band and lightly on the clip. Its 14k gold Warranted nib appears to be a size 4 or 5. The nib has a little hook downward, but it writes a great, smooth semi-flex extra-fine to 1mm. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3114: Sheaffer: Fountain Pen
We work with a lot of teenagers, and the big thing many of them are into is defining themselves as "a basic." We aren't 100% sure what it means, but it seems to involve leggings, fairy lights and Starbucks. When it comes to this plain black slender nonLifetime Sheaffer its like the perfect basic vintage pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this ink pen is a great daily driver. It has a nice imprint. The tail has a "c" imprinted, which means it was outsourced to the Celluloid company. Overall the pen looks great, but there is a little brassing. The cap has some pitting and marking. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, dry extra-fine line. 13.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3112: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Jade green looks pretty good on our oversized senior Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pen. The barrel great color, while the cap has a little more discoloration. Still, there are no cracks. Our vintage pen comes with a straight clip that does feature brassing on the ball. Its barrel imprint starts strong on the top line but gets weaker as you go down. There is a clear "D" imprint on the flat end of the tail. Click the headline for a great close-up of the original 14k gold nib. Writing with it is a firm, fine, wet treat. We recently acquired this from a collector who restored all of his pens. This has a good working ink sac in it. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3104: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
Drifting up through the slate grey cap and barrel of this vintage pen are shafts of light-grey hidden until they are hit by light. It is a stunning late entry from the Gold Bond pen makers. Our pen also is distinguished by four rings that look almost like the window pane design on a suit coat. Fully restored, this pen has a fresh ink sac and a brilliantly clear ink view window. No cracks or brassing, but you can see some wear on the cap more than the barrel. Luckily, nobody will see the wear unless they are scrutinizing the cap very close up. Its 14k gold nib writes a nice extra-fine to fine line. Click the headline for a great close-up. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3105: Moore: Boston (?)
Emerald-green striations make an ordinary fountain pen look extraordinary in this vintage Moore's pen. We were told it was a Moore Boston, but we think that is just where the pen was made. It is a fully restored with a new ink sac. Aside from substantial brassing, the pen is in excellent condition. No cracks, no bite marks, minimal wear. The viewing window is perfectly clean and clear. Its original 14k gold nib writes a wet, fine line with a little flex and feedback. 12.7 cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3111: Conklin: Endura Senior Set
Black and orange make this oversized Conklin Endura set the official pen set of Halloween! The handsome good looks of these vintage writing instruments will send shivers down your spine. There are a couple little nicks and blemishes on them, but they are in fantastically good condition. The orange detailing is mostly present, and the plating looks close to perfect on each instrument. The fountain pen has been restored with a new ink sac. The pencil appears to be working, but it needs some 1.1mm lead. The only really obvious flaw for some people is "Chester Vincent" engraved on each. (What ever happened to the name Chester?) The pen's original 14k gold nib writes a firm medium line that requires a little pressure to keep flow going. Once you "train" the nib a little, it might not require any extra pressure. 13.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3099: Eclipse: Deco
Talk about the cat's meow and bee's knees all rolled into one. We love the brashly vibrant Eclipse Deco fountain pen. Given the materials in its "Devo hat" like marbled green topper, we think this is more from the early 1930s than 1920s, but, still, it has some roaring style. For a vintage pen, it doesn't have a ton of wear. Very mild wear. Restored with a fresh ink sac, this pen is as functional as it is attractive. The 14k gold Warranted nib can write close to a razor-sharp extra-fine line, but it has 1mm FLEX. Close to oversized, it might be more like the large end of the spectrum for standard sized. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3095: Esterbrook: J-2968 Set
Vibrant sapphire blue marks this Esterbrook J-model fountain pen as especially attractive in our eyes. In many ways, Esterbrook made the Technicolor favorite pens of the 1950s. Attractive, affordable and easily customized with its screw-in nibs these pens were among the most requested by high schools and trade schools. This pen comes with a minty fresh original "Esterbrook" ink sac that is in great working order. The nib is a mid-level upgrade steel 2968 model, which was advertised as a "broad writing" nib. We find it writes a little inconsistently...mediumish on the bottom half of a figure eight and fine to extra fine on the top loop of a figure eight. The clip is about 1mm off the cap but on tight. The pencil is an early clicker that uses 1.1mm lead. It comes with spares loaded in the tail. Each writing instrument is in great condition. The pen has a tad more wear, if you look very closely. Pen measures 12.6cm capped.
