Vintage Pens: 2759: Esterbrook: Deep V-Clip
Dig deep to the roots of Esterbrook fountain pens with a very early black hard rubber Esterbrook V-Clip. Famous for their beautifully lustrous and vibrant celluloids, it is almost hard to believe Esterbrook had production line, non-dip black hard rubber pens. Yet, here's the proof. No cracks, but it does have a couple small but obvious scratches on the cap and barrel. The imprint is clean. You can see the chocolate hazing in the photo. Fully restored, this vintage pen comes with a fresh ink sac. Its early steel 1554 Gregg nib looks as if it was filed down to an oblique stub. It writes a smooth medium with variation at a very low angle of attack, but it isn't forgiving if you change hand positions. 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2755: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice
Among the hardest-to-find Esterbrook pens is the famed Esterbrook Cracked Ice design from the 1930s until about 1941. We found one. This particular model has been officially referred to as both green AND blue, but not blue-green. Just as stunning as the design is the fact it is in such pristine condition, with only the slightest trace of discoloration near the threads on the barrel. Click the headline for a close-up. You can easily get lost in the nooks and crannies of such vibrant early plastics. It has no cracks and minimal wear. It was restored with a fresh ink sac. The original steel 9668 nib writes a very nice fine line with only a faint hint of feedback. Wider bodied like a J-model. 12.1cm capped.
