Vintage Pens: 4710 ?? Newton & Co. ? Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4710: ?? Newton & Co. ?: Sterling Silver
Click the headline to get this started properly and see the stunningly huge wet-noodle flexy 14k gold nib. Looks like a faded initial or two then "Newton & Co. / New York / No. 5." We've seen other brands size 8 nibs that look smaller than this nib. This vintage dip pen is large and exquisite. Although it isn't marked as such, it appears to have a sterling silver section and hollow barrel. Possibly a pencil was involved with the other end of the nib section, but it is missing and there is a large blemish that is easily seen in the photo. Dents blemish the end of the barrel. Nevertheless, this remains a beautiful 19th century pen. We aren't expert enough to wield it, yet it seems to write a nearly invisible extra-fine to 1mm line. 14.1mm fully extended, 10.3cm closed.
Vintage Pens: 4709 John Holland Fine No. 7
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 4709: John Holland: Fine No. 7
Victorian/Edwardian dip pen fans will continue to gush over this red mottled hard rubber No. 7 by John Holland. It is a dynamite hard rubber pen with no cracks. You can see some dark ink staining on one end, but the rest of the vintage pen is pretty amazing. Its huge 14k gold nib is marked "fine," and it has a little flex but it isn't a wet noodle. It has a little feedback as most of these dip nibs do, but it is a treasure for sure. The tail taper is also the cap of the pen. Great for attempting Spencerian script or display. 9.2cm closed.
Vintage Pens: 4708 Hick’s LeRoy W Fairchild
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4708: Hick’s: LeRoy W Fairchild
William S. Hicks Gold Pen Co. got its start in 1857. This dual dip pen and pencil has an 1867 patent mark. It is a lovely Victorian pen. The barrel sports some kind of black lacquer over a diamond pattern. We assume (potentially wrongly) that the barrel is made of brass with gold-filled ends. The section could very well be made of gold and has an identical pattern as the barrel. However, the section is stamped with the maker name of "L.W. Fairchild & Co." (The bottom of the L is a weak imprint and looks like a T.) The large No. 6 14k gold nib is marked LeRoy W Fairchild. It is a fantastic Spencerian nib that writes fine to 2mm with plenty of flex! Click the headline for close-ups. We don't know if the pencil still works, but the tube still extends and retracts. Minimal wear on the pen and its pieces, possibly some brassing or stubborn tarnish. Look closely at the nib stand-alone photo. There might be the start of a crack in the bottom or left shoulder of the nib. 9.5cm closed.
Inkwells and Blotters: 4640 Porcelain Inkwell
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Inkwells and Blotters: 4640: Porcelain: Inkwell
Add some beauty and style to your desk with this porcelain inkwell with a floral design. Click the headline, and you can see that you lift the lid of the inkwell by the yellow rose to dip and fill your pen. A reserve dish behind the inkwell portion is for stamps, back when your could tear them from a perforated sheet and had to lick them. No cracks or chips mar the porcelain, but the gold piping along the edges is worn or missing in many places. There is what likely was part of a maker's mark on the bottom in the gold paint for the edging, but it, too, is mostly missing and indistinguishable. The flowers are all perfect. We dont't actually know when this was made, but the design suggests it might have been for a dip pen, yet the floral pattern seems a little more modern, which is why we guess the 1920s. However, we are not experts on porcelain inkwells and it could be earlier or later. International shipping might require more money than the site will ask. L: 14cm X W: 8cm X H: 7.5cm.
Inkwells and Blotters: 4639 Unknown Copper Inkwell
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $75.00
SOLD!
Inkwells and Blotters: 4639: Unknown: Copper Inkwell
Being a fountain pen junkie is more than just a writing experience. It is a dipping and filling experience, too! No desk is complete without a proper inkwell. We find it difficult to tell what metal this piece of ephemera is made of, but we think it is copper. It isn't nearly as heavy as a cast iron piece. It has a nice art nouveaux look. Best of all, it comes with its porcelain inner well! Click the headline to see it with the lid open. It is 15cm X 8cm X 7cm. Additional charges might apply for international shipping.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4595 Danitrio L.E. Brillante
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 4595: Danitrio: L.E. Brillante
Numbered 164 of only 300, the Danitrio Brillante is a very handsome limited edition ballpoint pen. Its ivory-colored ends and mother-of-pearl barrel really stand out. Golden Greek key accents make for the perfect trim. The pen is in mint condition and barely--if ever--used. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract a working blue Parker-style refill. 12.6cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4583 LeBoeuf Greg Norman
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4583: LeBoeuf: Greg Norman
You're gonna need a bigger pen case. That's right "The Shark" Greg Norman has his own limited edition LeBoeuf fountain pen. Ours is numbered 0672. This is the modern revival of the classic LeBoeuf pen company that first invented the celluloid pen. The PGA champion's autograph is on the black cap of this otherwise gold plated pen sporting an alternating design of plain stripes and a barley pattern. At the top of the cap appears to be an opal, perhaps a nod to his Aussie roots. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth extra-fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. You can fill it with its included screw-in standard international converter or like cartridges. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4572 Unknown Ivory Dipper
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4572: Unknown: Ivory Dipper
Click the headline to take a look at the beautifully etched design on this 14k gold nib. We suspect this dainty little dip pen dates back to the late 1800s. We think its tail tapper is ivory. It comes complete in its original box. Here's the bad news. It is missing a teeny-tiny bit of the tipping of the nib. As such, it doesn't really write. You can have the tipping redone, but we don't do any metallurgy. It is a great rare little treat that is great for decoration and potentially future use with a little repair work.
