Pre-Owned Pens: 3865 Yves Saint Laurent Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3865: Yves Saint Laurent: Fountain Pen
Dahlings, only the most fashion forward people will be wearing a fountain pen this fall, and you will look simply devastating with an Yves Saint Laurent pen in your pocket or purse. The fashion giant got into pens to accent the company's clothes, and this pen is a surprisingly nice writer for a non-gold nib. Whatever its golden alloy is writes a reasonably smooth fine line. It fills with either standard international cartridges or a converter, which we don't have for it. Its orange and black design harkens back to the 1920s. The pen has some wear on the section and some heavier wear on the cap band. Otherwise the pen looks great. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4078 Wasp The Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4078: Wasp: The Clipper
You can tell pen collectors pre-Generation X designated this design as "retriculated" and "circuit board" not "Matrix." We think Neo might approve of our Wasp "The Clipper." It is a very futuristic design for the 1940s. Wasp tried to pretend it was an independent brand, but it was really a Sheaffer brand designed for the second-tier market. We restored this pen, and there is nothing second tier about it. It has a new ink sac, and the vintage pen has very little wear. No cracks or noteworthy scratches. It has a little brassing or chipping of the silvery finish on its lever. Strong imprint. And O-M-G! The 14k gold nib writes a super-smooth fine line that is fine and wet. You will love writing with this pen. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3863 Acme Laurinda Spear
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3863: Acme: Laurinda Spear
Laurinda Spear has been a cutting-edge architect for all of her career. Fusing modern art and design into both exteriors and interiors, she has become world renowned. Later in her career she also incorporated landscaping as an integral part of her designs. This pen by Acme pays tribute to her vision. Black writing on a white cap and barrel repeats the phrase "The pen is mightier than the sword." You'll notice wear on the pen, especially around the section grip. Click the headline for a close-up, and you'll see the top of the nib is a little pitted, but the writing surface is great for a steel nib. It writes a smooth medium line, but it tends to do it with a little noise and drag. It uses standard international cartridges and possibly converters, but we haven't one for this pen. 13.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4040 Eagle Caduceus
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $199.99
SOLD!
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: 4037 Fend Normatic Walz Gold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 4037: Fend: Normatic Walz Gold
We restored this Fend Normatic Walz Gold fountain pen with a new ink sac. It writes delightfully well. Its Warranted 14k gold nib has some flex and write smoothly from medium to 1.25mm wide. You can see some chocolate hazing on the black hard rubber, and a few marks on the rubber as well. The gold plating/fill on the sleeve are great with only a little wear and brassing at the edges. Given its tiny size, we suspect it was a vest-pocket pen. 9.6cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4049 Romet Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 4049: Romet: Fountain Pen
Acrylic tiger-eye and grey swirls make for a captivating design on this Romet fountain pen. We had never previously heard of the brand, but it is a handsome devil. It is in excellent condition with minimal wear. It sports a international converter, and it also uses like cartridges. Its two-tone steel nib is marked as medium but it writes more of a fine line for us with a little feedback and sharp cross-strokes, like on a "T." 13.7cm.
Vintage Pens: 4032 Palmer Method Pin
Filling Mechanism: _Other
Price: $35.00
Vintage Pens: 4032: Palmer: Method Pin
How's your handwriting? Have you mastered the first 25 drills of the Palmer Method? If so, this pin is meant for you. Click the headline to see close-ups of not only the front of the button but its inscribed back! Not anybody could earn this lapel pin. It is pretty cool to see the classic writing hardware. It is about the size of a dime.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4030 Monte Cristo Cigar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $35.00
SOLD!
Pre-Owned Pens: 4030: Monte Cristo: Cigar Pen
The famed Monte Cristo cigar company released a special rollerball pen to go with a cigar sample set in the past decade. (OMG. We love their cigars.) This pen looks as if it took style pointers from the Montblanc F. Scott Fitzgerald pen. It takes standard rollerball refills, but what we really love about it is that the tail piece unscrews to reveal a cigar punch! Who doesn't love a multi-functional pen. Look closely at the photo, and you can see the side of the pen barrel has seen some moderate wear. When posted the refill still seemed to have some black ink in it, but we don't know how much or how long it will last. 14.2cm capped.
