Pre-Owned Pens: 5859 Waterman Carene Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $179.99  Was: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5859: Waterman: Carene Deluxe
Here's a little treasure of a preowned luxury ballpoint pen. Before you is the Waterman Carene Deluxe. More than any Deluxe model, it has the bronze-colored barrel with a plated vermeil cap. A normal Deluxe cap has a sterling silver plating. This cap was first plated in silver and then in gold! You will find minimal, if any, wear. Twist the tail cap to advance or retract the black ballpoint refill. We prefer these ballpoints over standard Montblanc resin ballpoints because the are sturdier with a lovely heft that helps the ballpoint write much more smoothly across the page. 13.9cm.
Vintage Pens: 5876 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5876: Parker: Vacumatic
It is difficult, in this day and age, to imagine a time when wealthy, sophisticated young ladies were brought on to the more genteel dating scene as debutantes. Nevertheless, it wasn't that long ago. This Parker Vacumatic Debutante set was made in 1938 and intended for young women of class and culture. Fully restored with a new diaphragm the fountain pen is in good working order. There are no cracks, and its grey pearl design is lovely with nickel trim. The barrel has ambered and is difficult to see through. We think this is a replacement filler unit, as it is plastic instead of aluminum. The nib is a little tarnished, but we also think it still has a shadow of its two-tone look. You will write a nice extra-fine line with a touch of feedback. We can polish it for you, but that will guarantee it is a monotone 14k gold nib. The matching pencil still works and clicks to advance lead. 11.7cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5853 Parker 100
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $225.00  Was: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5853: Parker: 100
Building off the nostalgia for the Parker 51, the company launched what they hoped would be a more modern version of the pen in the Parker 100. This set included both the rollerball and ballpoint version of the pens in the original box. To be honest, it is quite possible they were never sold as a set in the box when they first came out, but that is how we found and are selling them. Each instrument looks great and works well. There's a little scuffing from the cap snapping to the section of the rollerball. Otherwise, they are still cosmetically beautiful. Each has its respective working, black refill.
Pencil: 5851 Pelikan Souveran D800
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $269.99  Was: $299.99
Pencil: 5851: Pelikan: Souveran D800
Sometimes the most challenging part about collecting a set of writing instruments is collecting the pencil. Our Pelikan Souveran D800 pencil with .7mm leads is not impossible to find, but not as common as the black, green and blue variants. The red was even discontinued for several years--brought back only recently. This is one of those earlier pencils. It also is in excellent condition with minimal, if any, wear. Twist the tail cap to extend or retract the leads. You will find it has a fresh new eraser and spare leads under it. Arriving in its original box, this pencil is the perfect way to complete a set or start collecting a new color for a new set of Pelikans. A sparkly (matte) golden mama pelican sits with a single chick on the black field of the Pelikan logo. 14.2cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5850 Pelikan Souveran R800
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $269.99  Was: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5850: Pelikan: Souveran R800
If you are looking for the pinnacle of everyday modern luxury writing instruments, look no further than the Pelikan Souveran 800. A commanding, large pen with red stripes, this color pen was a slow seller for Pelikan, which got discontinued. Only recently was the color scheme brought back. However, this is an earlier, pre-discontinuation version of the pen. It has minimal, if any, wear. It comes with a working blue refill and its original box. You can see the lid of the box has more wear than the pen. Ideal for work and play. The logo is a golden matte-finish mama pelican with two chicks on a black background. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5873 Wahl-Eversharp Doric
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $275.00
Vintage Pens: 5873: Wahl-Eversharp: Doric
In our not-so humble opinion, the Wahl-Eversharp Doric was one of the most attractive art deco pens ever made. Sadly, many of them are decomposing through a process many call krazing. Wahl-Eversharp might have mastered design, but they hadn't, yet, perfected the formula for celluloid. Happily enough, this ruby red pen and pencil show no signs of krazing! They do show a fair amount of wear from use, but there are no cracks and the pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a close-up. You will write a very smooth, slightly dry fine line with its 14k gold nib. The pencil is an early clicker that still works. The nose cone is heavily brassed, as such we are hesitant to polish the clicker in the tail. Junior sized instruments. Pen measures 11.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5856 Cross Peerless 125
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $269.99  Was: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5856: Cross: Peerless 125
We'd take a Cross Peerless 125 ballpoint pen any day over a Montblanc LeGrand ballpoint. Large for easier gripping, we love its 23k gold plate and metal construction. There's a Swarovski crystal in the cap jewel. Plus, it takes more affordable, easy-to-find ballpoint refills. This pen is almost perfect with only a couple small scratches. No dents. It comes with its original box and papers. It also has a snazzy acrylic block display. Also includes a working, black Cross refill. 14.5cm
Vintage Pens: 5872 Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $999.99
Vintage Pens: 5872: Wahl-Eversharp: Gold Seal
What makes the Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal fountain pen is it screw-in "Signature" nib system, which allowed customers to be certain they got the nib that was best for them. This lastest vintage pen, also known as a Decoband, comes with a 14k gold nib with an F marked on the inkfeed--indicating a fine point. However, when we dipped it, we found that with a little feedback it could write from an extra fine to just short of a millimeter. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this classic pen is ready for action. You can see some discoloration in the original black and pearl design. No cracks but some wear from use. Its matching pencil is in the same condition, working with a 1.1mm lead that is red! Pen measures 13.7cm capped.
