Pre-Owned Pens: 6155: Ranga: Fountain Pen
We don't know a lot about India's Ranga pens. However, we do know this is a very nice writing fountain pen with a very comfortable grip. The wide grip is excellent for people whose fingers cramp up when writing or have arthritis. You will find its golden alloy nib writes a smooth medium line. Complete with box. The pen looks nearly new. Click the headline for a close-up. 15.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6154 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 6154: Sheaffer: Craftsman
Social media excels at telling us we misidentify these pens as Sheaffer Craftsman pens. However, we're pretty sure that is what this is. We restored this lever-filler with a new ink sac. These pens came out in the mid- to late 1940s, and the war rationing was evident in this skinny cap band. This vintage pen was heavily used but remains free of cracks. It does have substantial wear and a really deep scratch on the cap, down and to the left of the pocket clip. The black color of the pen helps to hide the blemishes. You will write a wonderful extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. The nib sounds scratchy but writes surprisingly smoothly. Click the headline for a close-up. 12.7cm capped.
Inkwells and Blotters: 6153 Amethyst Milk Glass
Era: pre-1900
Price: $99.99
Inkwells and Blotters: 6153: Amethyst: Milk Glass
Inkwells come in so many different beautiful shapes and sizes. This one appears to be white milk glass with brass trim. The lid to the antique inkwell has what looks like a polished amethyst stone (or polished glass, we aren't sure, but it is a pretty purple) on top. We don't know who made it. The only marking on it is inside the lid with a patent date of Dec. 28 1897. The bottom has a dried leather or paper pad to protect the desktop surface. It is a discreet but attractive desk piece. The round base measures 3 inches across. The whole piece's height is only about 2.5 inches.

Pre-Owned Pens: 6152: Levenger: Verona
Rounding out our collection of Levenger Verona fountain pens is this purple model. We love how the acrylic undulates from light to dark purple. It is strongly suspected that these were made by Stipula in Italy. Our pen comes with a standard international converter, but it also takes like cartridges. Click the headline for close-ups. There is a two-tone 14k gold nib. You will write a nice broad line with it. It has just a touch of feedback. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 6151 Sheaffer Craftsman
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 6151: Sheaffer: Craftsman
The late 1940s brought the invention of the Sheaffer TouchDown filler. This pen used pneumatics to fill a standard ink sac using a series of metal tubes and an O-ring seal in the tail of the pen. We love these simple filling systems. We think this pen is called a Sheaffer Craftsman, but we aren't sure. We restored it with a new ink sac and O-ring. Its gold-plated trim shows some brassing, but it isn't hideous. The read of the blue pen shows wear from use but no cracks or serious blemishes. You will write a firm, fine line with its two-tone 14k gold nib. It has a small hint of feedback. Click the headline for close-ups. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 6148: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric Pelican Desk Pen
We've seen a lot of cool desk pens in our day, and we really love this frosted-brown-glass pelican made for an Eversharp Doric desk pen. It looks even more impressive with back lighting as the bird looks as if it is standing on rippling water. The glass is nearly perfect with one small chip near the back edge of the base. The celluloid trumpet looks like a marriage of a black trumpet and a green marble one, and the gold plating looks good on the trumpet and the pen. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The pen has the green art deco look not marbled. The section has a little chocolate hazing. This is a nice thick, larger pen. your will write a firm, medium line with its 14k gold manifold nib. There is a hint of feedback with the nib. Click the headline for close-ups. Pen is 21.4cm long. Base 10.5cm L X 9cm W X 12.5cm H.
