Vintage Pens: 2636 Waterman 54
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 2636: Waterman: 54
Fans of flexi writers have settled on vintage Waterman pens from the 1920s as the best pens of that era. The Waterman 54 is one of the larger pens from that brand and era. This one is about as long as the oversized competition, but it is only about as wide as a standard-size competitors. This one has two gold-plated bands around the chased black hard-rubber barrel. The tail band is engraved on two lines: "R. A. Jewell. / Fairfield, Me." No cracks, scratches or other serious damage mars the cap or barrel. It does have more chocolate hazing on the barrel than the cap. The 14k gold nib is not an original Waterman nib, but it is a semi-flex stub Warranted size 4 nib! 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2600 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 2600: Conklin: Endura
From the heyday of the vintage pen era comes an oversized Conklin Endura in black and bronze! Even the original painted yellow stripes are 99% intact! It is a beautiful pen which we restored with a fresh ink sac. The trim has some brassing, as you might see in the photo. Click the headline to see a better close-up. The bronze in the cap is a little duller than it is in the barrel, but it still looks great. The back of the cap has a worn "dent" line in it, but it is difficult to see unless someone is looking at the pen closely. Strong imprint, light wear on the rest of the pen. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a great, smooth, firm extra-fine line! 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2367 Sheaffer Frankenpen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 2367: Sheaffer: Frankenpen
Sheaffer once made a Lifetime fountain pen with a torpedo cap and flattail body. However, we think this is either the work of a clever con man or just somebody trying to make a complete pen from two halves. The barrel and nib are of a 1920s Sheaffer Lifetime Junior-Size. The cap is of a 1930s junior Balance. Together, they make a great pen. We found it this way and restored it with a new ink sac. The cap and barrel each have a fair degree of wear. There is no brassing; nor are there any cracks. The 14k gold nib with original 1920s inkfeed write a very nice, firm medium line. 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2330 Morrison’s Black Hard Rubber
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 2330: Morrison’s: Black Hard Rubber
New York City was a hotbed of fountain pen activity in the 1920s, and Morrison's was a big player. What strikes us as particularly impressive about this Morrison's Black Hard Rubber fountain pen is how incredibly preserved the cap and body are. The pinstripes and company imprint are very strong, and there is minimal chocolate hazing or other deterioration in the black rubber. The lever and pocket clip show more tarnish. The really thin 14k gold nib definitely has flex, but it doesn't perform the way most flex nibs do. It mostly writes a medium line, but you can take it to a double broad. It can be a bit scratchy, but it isn't so bad that you'd never won't want to write with it...if you choose to write with it. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Long and slender. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2057 Esterbrook LJ-2668
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $39.99
Vintage Pens: 2057: Esterbrook: LJ-2668
Esterbrook fountain pens taught an entire generation how to write with an ink pen. Babyboomers were likely required by their schools to write with an Esterbrook fountain pen. Inexpensive and easily customized, pens such as this Esterbrook LJ come with an easily changed steel nib to fit any writing style or need. The nibs simply unscrewed from the pen and were replaced for less than a dollar. We restored this pale-green pen with a new ink sac. The pen was a daily user and features some wear, including a few small stains, which you can see at the tail of the pen in the photo. Click the headline for a closer look. The cap is a few shades of green different from the barrel. Possibly married. The steel 2668 nib was advertised as a "general writing" point, which writes a smooth medium when held at the sweet spot angle. No cracks. The clip isn't quite making contact with the barrel, where it slips into your pocket. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1890 Waterman Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 1890: Waterman: Desk Pen
Everyone's got an empty base with no pen, but we've got the rare Waterman Desk Pen with no base! Restored with a new ink sac, this Waterman desk pen features a black hard rubber taper and exceptionally large section. The barrel is a black and pearl with some discoloration. Polish took out the worst of the chocolate hazing. There are remarkably few scratches or marks of wear. No cracks! The imprint is strong, and it lists the pen as made in Canada. The 14k gold nib is marked "Med. Rigid." It is definitely rigid, and more of a fine to fine-medium. Click the headline to see more. 20cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1025 Morrison’s Black Beauty
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $134.99  Was: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1025: Morrison’s: Black Beauty
Morrison's fountain pens were a 2nd tier contender out of New York. Its vintage pen model "Black Beauty," photographed here, is clearly a nod to the famous novel, as there is a horse's head and neck engraved on the barrel in the logo. This pen would become known as the Patriot during World War II, but these 1930s models were made of black hard rubber, given golden trim accents and a steel nib. This model, has its original gold-plated steel nib! 90% or more of the plating is gone, but you can still see it in the stamped engraving. It writes a nice fine line without any pressure, but with pressure it gets a tad scratchy. We replaced the ink sac and the J-bar with a new, hand-fashioned brass one made in our shop. As the new J-bar doesn't put as much pressure against the lever filler, the lever is a little loose. No cracks, some chocolate hazing. The top of the cap has a great art nouveau topper in a deep, dark, yellowy-orange. 13.2cm capped.
