Vintage Pens: 3065 Wasp The Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3065: Wasp: The Clipper
Remember the old ads for pork: The other white meat. This vintage pen can be known as the other Sheaffer Clipper. Technically, this is the Wasp "The Clipper." It comes with a fully restored skinny rod "Vacuum Filler." Wasp was a sub-brand of Sheaffer. It's imprint listing Ft. Madison, Iowa, as a home base gives it away. The vacuum filler was Sheaffer's response to the Parker Vacumatic with an empty barrel filling system. It's a rather ingenious feat of engineering. The single downstroke vacuum pump is very effective when it works. Originally designed to last forever, it turned out that forever didn't last very long. Luckily, this one has been fully restored and works very smoothly. The design looks as if the computer age met art deco. Its 14k gold nib writes a firm extra-fine line. You might need to use a touch more pressure than normal to keep it flowing. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: : NAMIKI: Yukari Zodiac Rat Maki-e FP 1st Edition
The 1st edition of zodiac pens using ebonite and decorated with taka maki-e - high relief lacquer and some jim-maki-e (gold dust laquering).
This version has been discounted around 2007. I feel that the body of the FP is of a good weight vs the newer versions. The motif for this FP is the Zodiac Rat.

Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $299.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2861: Laban: Vermeil
We weren't aware Laban made such classy pens until we saw this special ballpoint pen. The pen is marked sterling silver and has a gold-plated finish. We aren't sure of its official model name, so we are simply calling it the Laban Vermeil. This pen has almost no wear at all. It looks a little like a Caran D'Ache but has 8 sides. It is currently loaded with a Parker-style ballpoint refill with blue gel ink. It writes divinely. Click the headline for a close-up of the sterling mark on the pen. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3026 National Pen Co. Lakeside
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3026: National Pen Co.: Lakeside
Often overlooked are pens by Chicago's own National Pen Company. A serious rival to Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s, they made beautiful, high-quality fountain pens. Some of their early celluloids are stunningly gorgeous. This is an even earlier pen, the oversized National Lakeside. Made from black hard rubber, it is in excellent condition with minimal chocolate hazing on the barrel, no cracks anywhere and very little wear. There's a little brassing on the lever and pocket clip. The barrel imprint is faded in the middle. Click the headline to see the nib, and you can see old plier marks on the section from a past repairman many decades ago. We installed a new ink sac. The Warranted 14k gold nib is a #8 that writes a fine line with a hint of feedback that "sings" as you write. It writes well enough, in spite of the feedback. Oversized but not too large you can't write with it comfortably. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 2904 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler)
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $1,750.00
Vintage Pens: 2904: LeBoeuf: #8
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
