Vintage Pens: 4040: Eagle: Caduceus
Slithering its way into your heart is what we are calling the Eagle Caduceus pen. We don't know the actual model name for this vintage pen. However, it is an oversized blue pen with a reddish-orange tail and cap stripes annnnnd a stunning snake clip in what we think is sterling silver. We don't know if it was custom or original, but the pen appears to have had this snake clip for quite some time. (It took us a while to clean up the tarnish.) The cap band has a fading gold plating. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen has some wear, but there are no cracks, and it feels solid. The nib is a little small, but it reads as a "Warranted 14k 8." What that doesn't tell you is what a nice flexi nature it has! We feel it goes from a fine to a 1.25mm wide line fairly easily. It has a little feedback, as flexi nibs often do, but it is fun to write with. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4013: Waterman: 452
Hand-engraved sterling silver Waterman's fountain pens are true treasures, especially when paired with a FLEXI 14k gold nib that writes extra fine to about 1.25cm. Shading closer to semi-flex, this classic #2 nib isn't a wet noodle. Nevertheless, it is a smooth treat with which to write. We are selling this pen on behalf of the brilliant pen-repair tool designer Stuart Hawkinson, and he calls the engraving on the barrel and cap "floral vine." The sleeves of the cap and barrel are marked sterling and show no dents and minimal wear. There are no initials in the window left on the barrel. The pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. BUT WAIT, there's more! You get the matching pencil that still works, too! It comes loaded with a 1.1mm lead that entends but doesn't necessarily retract with the mechanism that does retract. Our favorite detail is that the pocket clips are also engraved! Pen measures 13.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4009: Waterman: 12
It's always something. This woodgrain Waterman 12 is almost completely perfect, but its tiniest flaw is its largest. It is missing the tipping on one of the nib tines. Otherwise, this pen is practically museum perfect. No cracks in the orange hard rubber. Clean, easy-to-read imprints. Click the headline to see close-up photos. You can see the cap's 1898 patent date. Although you can't write with the nib until you get it re-tipped, it has some very nice flex. (Sorry, if we knew how to re-tip a nib we'd have done it.) Minimal wear on the pen. There's a little darker spot where the slip cap covers the section and barrel. The section unscrews easily to fill with an eyedropper. Soooo close to perfection, and yet so far. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3969 Conklin #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 3969: Conklin: #2 Gold Filled Filigree
Vintage pen fans should go gaga over our Conklin #2 in gold-filled filigree. We restored this stunner of a classic crescent-filler with a new ink sac. Yet, its exterior needed no restoration. Marked "14kt * 1/5", the gold-filled exterior is nearly perfect with a floral pattern and only the lightest of wear. No cracks or marks in the black hard rubber, either. You'll only find chocolate hazing in the spaces between the filigree. Its safety ring is whole and slides around the pen easily. If that isn't enough to get you excited, it has a flexi (but not wet noodle) nib that writes an extra-fine line to just over 1mm. Not bad for a century-old 14k gold nib. It has a little feedback. No brassing on the clip. 12.8cm capped.
