Vintage Pens: 5047: Sterling: Silver
Maybe it is the romantic in us, but we like to picture a Victorian lady dressed in a fancy frock biting the end of this sterling silver dip pen as she writes her lover. To say this pen is elegant is an understatement. Fairly large for a dip pen, it is still slender, but not as slender as many other pens we've seen. Aside from the beautiful design there are no other hallmarks or assays other than the word "Sterling," which appears twice on the barrel of the pen in relief and not as an imprint. We aren't sure if this pen is from the early 1900s or late 1800s. We included a new-old-stock Bronze Falcon Esterbrook 048 nib. You will write a very nice semi-flex line that goes from a fine to almost 1mm wide with some feedback. Aside from the bite marks on the tail taper, the only other blemishes are some spots of tarnish we can't quite polish out. 18cm.
Vintage Pens: 5046 Sterling Silver Repousse

Vintage Pens: 5046: Sterling Silver: Repousse
Classy, elegant, sophisticated. Dip pen fans will love this sterling silver repousse antique pen. We suspect it comes from around the turn of the 20th century. It could be older. The holder is marked "Sterling," but there is no formal branding. Ergo, we don't know who made it. There are a couple little marks on the pen, and one of the silver edges where the nib goes in has split just a teeny-tiny amount. We included a "new" Esterbrook Bronze Falcon 048 nib, which is NOS. You will write a firm, smooth line from extra-fine to about 1mm. This is semi-flex and far from a wet noodle. Click the headline for close-ups. Yes, our cat is holding the pen down for a nib close-up, and, no, he is not for sale with the pen. 18.5cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4921 Pelikan Level

Price: $75.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 4921: Pelikan: Level
Pelikan Level fountain pens created the first new filling system in fountain pens in decades. We don't even know the name of the filling system. The concept was that the tail of the pen locked into a specially made inkwell, then you filled the pen. Unfortunately, we don't have the special inkwell that this pen needs. However, we do have the matching .5mm pencil. The pencil works well. The pen's steel nib writes a fine line with some feedback. Neither writing instrument has very much wear, just a little. However, there are some deep scratches on the section grip of the pen. Click the headline for close-ups.
