Vintage Pens: 4569 Unknown Ivory Dipper
Filling Mechanism: Dip
Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Click the headline to take a look at the beautifully etched design on this 14k gold nib. We suspect this dainty little dip pen dates back to the late 1800s. We think its tail tapper is ivory. It comes complete in its original box. Here's the bad news. It is missing a teeny-tiny bit of the tipping of the nib. As such, it doesn't really write. You can have the tipping redone, but we don't do any metallurgy. It is a great rare little treat that is great for decoration and potentially future use with a little repair work.
Vintage Pens: 4032 Palmer Method Pin
Filling Mechanism: _Other
How's your handwriting? Have you mastered the first 25 drills of the Palmer Method? If so, this pin is meant for you. Click the headline to see close-ups of not only the front of the button but its inscribed back! Not anybody could earn this lapel pin. It is pretty cool to see the classic writing hardware. It is about the size of a dime.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4029 Mont Blanc Wallet
Filling Mechanism: _Other
You like the look of a wallet, but you prefer the easy-access of a money clip...while enjoying the luxury of Montblanc? Today's you're lucky day! We have a great leather bi-fold Mont Blanc money-clip wallet still with its original box. Click the headline to see what it looks like opened up. A metal money clip makes up its spine, while the leather covering has slots for cards. It comes complete in its original boxes. If this wallet was used, it was only lightly used. It looks brand new on the front and insides, but there are a couple deep impressions in the leather on the outer back half. No tears or anything outrageous...but also not straight from the factory. Guaranteed authentic.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2942 Marlen Collezione Vite
Filling Mechanism: Key/Slot Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Looking to vintage pens for inspiration, the Marlen Collezione Vite fountain pen uses a key or slot filling system. Basically, you need a little key to depress the pressure bar resting against the ink sac. The keyhole is in the brass plate of the pen's barrel. The key is cleverly disguised as the pocket clip! Just unscrew the top of the cap to free it. This pen appears to have never been used outside of a dip or two. The ink sac needs to be replaced. The 18k gold nib writes a firm medium line with a dash of feedback, particularly on the ascenders of loops. 13cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2904 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
