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.
Vintage Pens: 5050 Waterman 0322
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $699.99
Vintage Pens: 5050: Waterman: 0322
Grail pens such as this Waterman 0322 "Chased" pen from the early 1900s are intoxicatingly rare. What has become known as "repousse" in many pens Waterman called "chased" in its early turn-of-the-century catalogs. This taper cap with gold-filled overlay is a once-in-a-lifetime pen for us. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to 1mm flexi line, but the slender hard-rubber pen is so delicate, we don't really recommend writing with it much. Filling this eyedropper pen will be difficult as the section seems firmly screwed together and not wanting to separate. Engraved on the barrel cartouche are the initials E.H.L. You can see a couple bite marks on the end of the barrel and tip of the taper. Its biggest flaw is an upside-down "L" crack from the lip of the cap. Clear imprint on the taper cap. Overall, a very good vintage pen for its age. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.7cm capped.
Pencil: 5035 Sheaffer Titan
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 5035: Sheaffer: Titan
The granddaddy of all pencils is here: Sheaffer Titan. This is what we like to call the lemon-lime jade version, as it features bright yellow swirls and flecks in the bright jade green celluloid. Our vintage pencil is in good working order. Twist the gold-filled crown on top to advance or retract the lead. As is the case with most of these, the crown is a bit dented around its edges. There's brassing on the ball and top of the pocket clip. Overall, the pencil looks great. No cracks or deep scratches. It fills with 1.1mm lead. There's a hardened eraser plugging up the space where we can hear spare leads rattling around. 13.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 5033 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $449.99
Vintage Pens: 5033: Parker: Duofold
Almost perfect but not quite. Check out the beautiful pearl-and-black celluloid on this Canadian Parker Duofold Jr. set. You can see some traces of the brown discoloration that got started in this vintage pen, but it isn't nearly as bad as most of these pens that I've seen. The inside of this cap is so clean, we're not sure the pen was ever used. It has been restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, major blemishes or brassing. Light wear if any. Click the headline to see a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. You can barely see it in the photo but there is a hairline crack just to the right or top of the "B" in the photo and it works its way up to the top bar of the "E" in "Pen." You will write a smooth medium line. Its matching pencil has perfect color but much more wear, and it doesn't work.
Vintage Pens: 5029 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 5029: Parker: Duofold
Lapis Lazuli Parker Duofolds are hard to find in such a vibrant blue condition. Yes, this junior-sized vintage pen is a couple shades darker than the matching pencil, but it is still a nice color. Click the headline for close-ups. The white flecks in the lapis blue pen are only mildly yellowed or browned in some places! The vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. You will write a juicy double broad line with its 14k gold nib. There is a Christmas-tree style ink feed. Spots of brassing on the cap bands and clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. The matching streamlined pencil is not working very well, shows a little wear and brassing...and it is missing a decorative barrel band. Pen measures 11.4cm capped.
Pencil: 5026 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline 176 PB
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 5026: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline 176 PB
Click-advance lead systems were brand new when Eversharp released its Eversharp 176-PB pencil. It might also be considered an Eversharp Skyline pencil. This vintage pencil is new-old-stock. You can see its original price tag/sticker ring in the photo. There is a little ink staining on the ring, but you can read most of the ring, including its 1940s' price of $3.75. We like that it is blue and that you can see how they used a different plastic for the nose cone. No brassing mars the gold-plated trim, but you can see plenty of wear marks on the pencil. Remove the tail clicker to find a hardened eraser and spare 1,1mm leads. 11.6cm.
Pencil: 4953 Pelikan D200
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 4953: Pelikan: D200
Tortoise shell pens are among the most sought in the Pelikan line, and here we have an even rarer .5mm pencil. It is a clicker in good working order. Pull off the clicker to reveal spare leads and a hardened eraser. Our pencil shows some wear from use but no cracks or deep scratches. The clicker logo plating is a little thin, showing a mama pelican with a single chick. 13.6cm
Pencil: 5021 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 5021: Conklin: Endura
Bronze and black flecks glitter in the light of this Conklin Endura pencil. In great working order, you'll smoothly advance and retract the 1.1 lead with a twist of the tail piece. You can still see yellow accent paint in the rings around the celluloid. The imprint is still legible. There isn't much brassing. However, there are scratches on the nose cone and bite marks on the tail. Spare leads are under the tail cap. 12.2cm.
