Vintage Pens: 5065: Palmer Method: Ringtop
Here's a first for us. This is a Palmer Method Ringtop fountain pen. We are speculating that the famed handwriting company began creating special pens to sell in house. We strongly suspect this pen was made for the Palmer Method folks by Wahl-Eversharp. Why? There's just something about its orange hard rubber woodgrain esthetic. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. No cracks or major blemishes to the hard rubber can be found. The gold plated trim has some brassing. Near the top of the cap is a faded Palmer Method imprint. Click the headline to see its 14k gold nib. You will write a lovely extra-fine line with maybe .5mm of flex on this semi-flex nib. It has a little feedback, but it doesn't feel bad. You can write with this pen all day and enjoy it. Long for a ringtop it measures in at 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5064: Diamond Point: Fill E-Z
Back in the roaring '20s, dozens of companies were vying for market share in the competitive world of fountain pens. Diamond Point was more of a second-tier brand that made quality pens but not quite on par with Sheaffer, Parker or Waterman. This ebonite vintage pen still looks really sharp without any chocolate hazing. There is a bit of brassing around the top edge of the ringtop cap. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its size 3 14k gold nib has some flex. You will write a wet medium to 1.5mm wide with some feedback. Deep crisp imprints. 10.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5063: Mabie Todd (Swan): Ringtop
Celebrate summer with a sunny, semi-flex Swan ringtop fountain pen. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Like a glass of orange juice with light pulp, this classic Mabie Todd pen looks fresh and inviting. If you look very closely, you can see a few bite marks and scratches, but unless you are intentionally looking for them, they don't show well or easily. You will write a nice medium line with a semi-flex potential to go out to 1mm wide with its 14k gold nib. Nice, legible barrel imprint. 11cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5047 Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
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
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $399.99
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.

Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4905: Waterman: 45
You can write if you want to, if you don't no body will. But if your friends don't write, then somethin' ain't right, and they're no friends of mine. It's the safety pen. It's the safety pen. I bet the '80s group Men Without Hats never thought they'd inspire a vintage Waterman parody. It's weirdest intro we could do for this grail pen: the Waterman 45 Safety Filler! We were excited to get our hands on this vintage pen classic. Its hard rubber has only mild signs of chocolate hazing, and its insides are cleaned and moving smoothly. We are reasonably certain this pen is not water-tight, but it is an excellent example of this truly rare pen and worthy of a museum. Its cap has a silver clip and excellent chasing. The barrel still shows light chasing and imprints that are legible, but the chasing is not nearly as deep as it is on the cap. Its 14k gold nib is not marked 5 but it looks like a 5. You will write a smooth semi-flex line with it from extra-fine to just about 1mm. 13.4cm capped.

Its greatest flaws are majority brassing on its two skinny cap bands and some brassing on the pocket clip and thicker cap band. 13cm capped.
